The three volumes will enlighten both the novice and professional illustrator. For those who just enjoy the charm of children's illustration, this and the following volumes will be a real treat. For seventeen years Gazsi has also been a part-time college art instructor. He has shared the secrets of his craft with thousands of students. He has published five drawing books dedicated to revealing his knowledge, especially in the area of figure drawing and anatomy.
