In this simple guide to the basics of drawing, the legendary South African cartoonist Dov Fedler demystifies the act of putting pen to paper with the statement: 'My method for teaching is founded on one simple principle: if you can write you can draw. Writing is drawing. And fun.'
Using a series of easy-to-follow lessons based on the alphabet and numbers, he takes the reader on a journey into our own creativity, and reminds us that drawing will help us to see better, imagine more and create something new every single day.
Why should you draw? Apart from the many reasons he offers in these pages, he reminds us: 'I believe you should learn to draw because you already can.'
