Product Description

About the Author

San Francisco illustrator and fine artist LISA CONGDON was raised in both upstate New York and Northern California where she grew to love the trees and animals that surrounded her. That love is now expressed through her paintings and drawings. Lisa is predominantly self taught and did not begin painting until she was 31 years old. She is also a prolific collector of old and unusual things and surrounds herself with these things in her home & studio. In 2010 she chronicled her collections in her Collection A Day 2010 Project. That project is now a book, published in March 2011. In 2012, Lisa engaged in another daily project called 365 Days of Hand Lettering. 100 of her hand lettered quotes from that project will be published by Chronicle Books in Spring of 2014.
In addition to illustration, Lisa periodically shows her work in galleries around the country. In 2011, she had her first major solo show at Gallery Hijinks in San Francisco and was in her first museum show at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco. Lisa works in the Mission District of San Francisco, where she also lives with her partner, Clay Lauren Walsh, her 10 pound chihuahua, Wilfredo, and her two cats, Barry and Margaret. She’s an avid cyclist and swimmer.

3.0 out of 5 stars 20 Ways to draw a tulip. 13 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback
I find this series very interesting and stimulating. I love to be able to draw and copy inside one book. With a pencil. a pen and a rubber I can move around with it quite easily and be able to add drawings at odd moments all through the day.
I was a little disappointed with this particular book. On some pages there was not much space to add sketches and a lot of the flowers were too stylised or simplified for my liking.
However, I'm still happy to carry on exercising my drawing with it. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to persevere and improve their drawing fluidity and speed.

Great drawings for inspiration. Use for direct copying or as a starting point for more detailed designs or art journaling. I own several of these books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed review. 18 Feb 2014
By Lal
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not so much a 'How to' book, more of a sketch book for you to copy really (there are no detailed written instructions or clues just an introduction). On the other hand there are 45 varieties of flowers to inspire quilting designs so I guess that's a bonus.

Very, very cute book! Not your typical drawing book! But in a good way. Would recommend to a friend! Maybe more for the experienced artist.
