Overview

Alien fever is running high: the Alien movies and reissue of the Star Wars trilogy have made outer space fascinating to a whole new generation of children. And who better to help budding artists master their drawings of the friendly folk from the final frontier than Lee Ames—creator of the phenomenally successful Draw 50 series?

An ideal tool for young artists or the parent or teacher seeking to help a child master their artistic skills, Draw 50 Aliens includes creatures from every walk of the galaxy: Ames gives instructions for drawing UFOs, Nebula Nomads, Milky Way Marauders, and every other type of extraterrestrial. And, in the tradition of the Draw 50 series, all of these characters are humorous, lovable, and very accessible for children.

With over two million copies in print, the Draw 50 series has successfully shown children how to create everything from a robin to a spaceship, Tyrannosaurus rex to John the Baptist. But with Draw 50 Aliens, Ames has—perhaps as never before—hit upon a deeply appealing subject, one that taps into children's sense of wonder and will keep them endlessly entertained and forever sketching away.

A step-by-step guide to drawing outer space creatures.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6A series addition for amateur artists. After a brief introduction, each page features a creature or vehicle to draw, accompanied by detailed sketches that progress logically. At times, however, the green pencil used in the illustrations is too light to show the added lines clearly. The figures vary in difficulty so that novices will not be discouraged and more experienced children will be challenged. The bizarre space characters with funny names are sure to please artists of any age.Michele Snyder, Chappaqua Public Library, NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

Meet the Author

Lee Judah Ames (January 8, 1921 – June 3, 2011 ) was an American artist noted for his Draw 50... learn-to-draw books. He was born in Manhattan, New York. His first job at age eighteen was at Walt Disney Studios. He has since led a career as an advertising artist, fine artist, cartoonist, designer, animation in-betweener, illustrator, and as an artist-in residence at Doubleday. His series of 26 Draw 50... books take a friendly and minimalist approach to teaching drawing while the books often contain no instructional text. He enlisted in the military and served as a second lieutenant during World War II. He and his wife Jocelyn resided in Mission Viejo, California.
