    Awesome book.

    I've always dreamed of being able to draw animals but I thought you had to be born with the ability. This book proved me wrong. If you can hold a pencil and draw a line, you can draw anything. I believe Lee's techniques can make an artist out of anyone. If your dream is to draw, look no further than Lee's books, you won't be disappointed.
