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.

Read an Excerpt

"If we taught children to speak, they'd never learn" - William Hull

Thirty or forty years ago, I read this quote. It stuck with me because i believe we often learn best through imitation. In many of my books I have advised that mimicry is prerequisite to creativity. It's wonderfully effective to imitate, copy, or trace what others have done in order to develop one's own tools for drawing before attempting to produce something original.

    Lilywolf Clarifications to Shellpool and Commetstorm

    Since you both didn't know me before you rped my kits, here are some clarifications: <br>
    1. I was leader of Horseclan for two years but Lilywolf became "lost" after my mom took my nook away for a year. <br>
    2. The prophecy is legit. I have no idea who made it up but it wasn't myself or Goldenstripe. <br>
    3. This is important. LILYWOLF AND GOLDENSTRIPE HAVE NEVER DONE ANYTHING ACCEPT WITH EACH OTHER (minus Roman). So there are no other kits to worry about or secrets there. <br>
    4. Goldenstripe's sister rped Goldy when he took Amberleaf as a mate. So the actual rper wasn't even aware of it but decided to keep it since it's apart of Goldenstripe's story. <br>
    5. The only reason I didn't ignore this entire episode was because Roman was apart of the rogue group and realistic. I did not plan it in any way, shape, or form so I coukdn't have seen it coming in 1 million billion years! So yep! Lily's at camp balling her eyes out! But please respond here to her story! It took a long time to put together! ~ Lilywolf &hearts
