Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This inspiring sketchbook is part of the new 20 Ways series from Quarry Books, designed to offer artists, designers, and doodlers a fun and sophisticated collection of illustration fun. Each spread features 20 inspiring illustrated examples of 45 themes–tulips, roses, dahlias, and much, much more–over 900 drawings, with blank space for you to draw your take on 20 Ways to Draw a Tulip.
This is not a step-by-step technique book--rather, the stylized flowers, snap dragons, and zinnias, are simplified, modernized, and reduced to the most basic elements, showing you how simple abstract shapes and forms meld to create the building blocks of any item that you want to draw. Each of the 20 interpretations provides a different, interesting approach to drawing a single item, providing loads of inspiration for your own drawing. Presented in the author’s uniquely creative style, this engaging and motivational practice book provides a new take on the world of sketching, doodling, and designing.

Get out your favorite drawing tool, and remember, there are not just 20 Ways to Draw a Tulip!

Synopsis:

The best way to learn to draw is to DRAW! And this little book is going to help you do just that. It’s filled with 900 inspiring, modern drawings of tulips, roses, zinnias, and more!

Synopsis:

San Francisco illustrator and fine artist Lisa Congdon was raised in both upstate New York and Northern California where she grew to love the trees and animals that surrounded her. That love is now expressed through her paintings and drawings. Lisa is predominantly self taught and did not begin painting until she was 31 years old. She is also a prolific collector of old and unusual things and surrounds herself with these things in her home & studio. In 2010 she chronicled her collections in her Collection A Day 2010 Project. That project is now a book, published in March 2011. In 2012, Lisa engaged in another daily project called 365 Days of Hand Lettering. 100 of her hand lettered quotes from that project will be published by Chronicle Books in Spring of 2014.

In addition to illustration, Lisa periodically shows her work in galleries around the country. In 2011, she had her first major solo show at Gallery Hijinks in San Francisco and was in her first museum show at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco. Lisa works in the Mission District of San Francisco, where she also lives with her partner, Clay Lauren Walsh, her 10 pound chihuahua, Wilfredo, and her two cats, Barry and Margaret.  She’s an avid cyclist and swimmer.

To learn more about Lisa in her own words, listen to this podcast of Lisa’s interview with Meighan O’Toole about her work & making art for a living. You can also read this interview with Lisa on The Great Discontent and view this short film about her artwork and life.
