But even if it doesn't change your life you'll never look at a booth and the person who works in it quite the same way again!
I used to draw quite a lot when I was young, then at school and uni we kind of make you understand that the only way to succeed is by avoiding being creative.
This book is for people who:
- want to get back to drawing
- need some kick in the bottom to get back to it (everyday)
- are looking for some inspiration
- want to exercise drawing
it's not for you if you're looking for a step by step book, it's more the kind of book that makes you think about the importance of playing with your creative side, it's also a good way to see the importance of things around you, once you start drawing everyday you'll see what he means
Well worth a read.
However, this is where I am glad that I leave it a couple of days before I review a book. Because Everyday Matters has not been very far from my mind over the last few days. I find myself thinking about it, mulling it over, when I least expect it. I can't even put my finger on what it is that is making me dwell on it. Is it the book I thought I was buying? No. At the time I had been dithering between buying this and buying The Creative License: Giving Yourself Permission to be the Artist You Truly Are also by Danny Gregory.Read more ›

It is a short and inspiring book for people who want to start drawing. It's greatest asset is it's honesty. Well worth buying, but he is not Leonardo Da Vinci, nor is he J. D. Read morePublished on 7 May 2013 by Mat Buch
