    Top of my list

    This book is fabulous! It teaches all the basics so you are still able to put a piece together that has your own personal style. The suggested exercises are very helpful and really do help the artist come into their own. Five stars!

    Only for those who want to be the best!

    Could sketching be any easier?!? The way Ms. Riegelman teaches step by step makes sketching incredibly easy. This book will become the one and only fashion sketchbook you'll ever need.

    'Let it Flow'

    'Let it flow' that is Nancy Riegelman's favorite personal quote as she recites it over and over during class. Not only am I fortunate enough to have her as a professor at FIDM in Los Angeles, but also was one of the few to receive her new book before it came out and I have to say that it is amazing. The book definitely captures everything that Nancy Riegelman teaches in her classes and with the many illustrations within the book, it definitely motivates you. Again GREAT BOOK. A must have for anyone who is serious about drawing beautiful croquis and eloquent fashion renderings.
