Infodad.com, 1/20/11 "The book offers a set of valuable introductory lessons in putting what you see-in the real world or your mind's eye-down on paper." Midwest Book Review, February 2011"A must for anyone who wants to pursue art but doesn't know where to start." Deseret News, 2/26/11"Kistler provides detailed instructions and tips that take the mystery out of making simple drawings that look good. He also uses a sense of humor and encouraging words to help." Sacramento Book Review, April/May 2011 "Kistler's approach is light and fun, and rather than overwhelming with technical terminology and intimidating concepts, he instead starts you out putting pencil to paper. Within the first few pages of the book, you are already well on your way...The approach presented in this book works so well because you get instant results, which inspire you to continue with the process."
