Most Helpful Customer Reviews
How to draw with a ballpoint pen is a stunning book, amazing in its design, layout, binding, breadth and depth of this seemingly humble medium. It is perfect for would-be artists like me to explore at work, rest, or play and without a large artistic budget for supplies. I love how Keck helps me to elevate what I thought were mere doodles into fine (and fun!) art. There are 44 lessons, rated with three levels of difficulty. I skip around, reading up on Sundays, and practicing what I read throughout the week. It is the most fun art book for real, and would-be, artists who, like Matisse, are eager to learn what they can do with this readily available medium.
