Sometimes I need a little inspiration and this book provided that. I enjoyed the different techniques and exercises that allowed me to grow as an artist and at times stretch out of my comfort zone.

I can sum this book up very easily: "Take your drawing pad every where you go, draw different places and people, and try using different media." Beyond that there's very little instruction or interesting projects to inspire you.
