Ed Emberley’s Drawing Book: Make a World


A friend told us that when she was young, she learned to draw from Ed Emberley’s drawing instructionals. We recently checked out Make a World and loved how Emberley deconstructs a drawing: using simple shapes as building blocks, you create objects and faces one piece at a time. Even those of us who aren’t artistically inclined can follow along. We love this “how-to” for breaking totally free from the standard human anatomy step-by-step––the results here are aesthetically sharp, cartoonish, funny and stylish all at once.
