'Drawn to Life' is based on the 193 beautifully illustrated and highly entertaining lecture notes of those classes. They embody the entire system of Stanchfield's teaching - with valuable advice, critical comment, and inspiration for every student of the arts and completely relevant to the contemporary animation or fine arts professional.
