You Will be Able to Draw by the End of This Book
You Will be Able to Draw by the End of This Book

5.0 out of 5 stars Like being in one of Jake's classes., 12 Jun. 2017
The format of this book is great being in part an instructional book and part sketchbook where you're encouraged to put into practice what you've just read. It breaks down all the different components of good observational drawing and includes some clever exercises to break you out of old habits and/or preconceived ideas about the "right way" to draw.

Jake's tone throughout is down to earth and encouraging and the pages also include many of his own beautiful drawings (not to intimidate, but inspire and instruct).

Personally, I've not actually drawn in the book yet as I had that feeling of not wanting to spoil it!! Which I know is ridiculous, but I've completed many of the exercises. I think eventually I will draw in the book as it makes for a sensible compact package.

I also particularly like the visual contents at the start of the book which enables you to see at a glance the different exercises, what each focuses on and crucially (for me) what amount of time Jake suggests spending on each.

A brilliant book for anyone; beginners, returners and experienced drawers will all find inspiration and useful advice in its pages.


Philips SHQ4200/10 ActionFit Washable Ultra Light Sports Headphones, Neckband - Red/Black
Philips SHQ4200/10 ActionFit Washable Ultra Light Sports Headphones, Neckband - Red/Black

1.0 out of 5 stars Right ear not working after only 9 months of light use., 16 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At first I thought these headphones would be great as they were comfortable (they come with 3 sizes of earbud) and the sound was ok.

After 9 months of using them a max of twice a week in gym sessions (not getting them wet or wearing them outside), the right ear has stopped working.

They're not the cheapest headphones around and I expected them to last longer than 9 months. Seller won't even communicate me and has just passed me on to Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for anyone thinking of starting a creative business or already running one!, 27 Oct. 2014
I would recommend this book to anyone who is thinking of starting their own business, or even those that already have – you can’t possibly know everything! This is a thorough and accessible guide thanks to it being written in a jargon-free, friendly style and through the use of lots of real-life examples and interviews. Each section sets you small tasks so that you can go and put the theory into practice yourself.

I speak to many enthusiastic people (including myself!) who are either already running a creative business or would like to start. There is always a gap in their knowledge of running a business, be it in using social media or how to properly cost their products and services. Craft a Creative Business has every aspect covered.

It’s broken into manageable chunks so that you can dip in and out and find the bit that’s relevant to what you’re working on right now.

To overcome the risk of ever-changing information about digital tools and resources becoming quickly out of date, Fiona has included extensive links and further reading and an active website and twitter account to support her book: www.craftacreativebusiness.co.uk and www.twitter.com/craftabiz

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book - something for all levels of ability & experience., 27 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted a comprehensive easy to follow patchwork book for my students to use in my workshop where I teach sewing.

This book is perfect. Inspiring pictures to look at, good range of projects and well explained instructions.

There's a project to suit everyone in here from those who have just started patchwork, those who want a quick to do project and more experienced patchworkers looking an inspiring contemporary project.

An essential book for any patchworkers library!
