Well-worn and dog-eared, these books are passed along from artist to artist as a way of sharing ideas and offering instruction. Here hundreds of drawings, most of them never before published, are reproduced on uncoated paper to resemble the pages of an authentic piecebook

      As with any other skill, it takes a lot of practice. Looking to others writers work for inspiration is good, but there is no substitute for sketching religiously and getting to know your letters, flow, and developing your own style, which you simply can't bite!

      Oh, I see I have been to this lens before and gave you 5 stars and a favorite. I love it!

      Thanks for visiting my lensography. You can find that template here: http://www.squidoo.com/squidwho/hq . Its a good idea to organize all your lenses in groups or just in one place. I have like 5 or 6 lenorgaphies. One is just for book reviews for example. Its a pretty good way to help build more links, just remember to link your lenses together too by lensrolling them to one another. ~ To your success, and if there is anything else I can help you with...please let me know. I'll be more than happy to help!!!
