I was just browsing google and came across your blog. Your drawings are beautiful and inspiring. I'm a highschool student interested in learning life drawing and was wondering if you could suggest some instructional books I could start out with? would really appreciate it.

Hi Derek,

Thank you for the kind words.

I haven't really had the chance to read many books on the subject (though I want to and should read more if given the time!). Below is a link to Alberto Ruiz's blog (an amazing artist who definitely knows his stuff) where he collected a pretty solid list of great books to start from.

Alberto Ruiz's List

In addition to Ruiz's list below are a couple of other books that you can take a look at:

The Natural Way to Draw by Nicolaides

Force: Dynamic Life Drawing for Animators by Mike Mattesi

I hope this helps!

All the best,
