Publisher Comments:

When Danny Gregory's life was turned upside down by tragedy, he learned to cope by teaching himself to draw. The result was a complete transformation of his life, his priorities, his career, and the way he saw the world. In handwritten chapters full of his lush watercolor illustrations, Danny now offers readers a program for reconnecting to their own creative energies, using drawing as an example. He gently instructs us in the art of allowing ourselves to fail, giving up the expectation of perfection and opening our eyes to the beauty around us. The result is the permission to express ourselves fully and take part in the creative process without fear. Artist or not, readers of all stripes will find inspiration in this unique and beautiful book.

Synopsis:

The author of "Everyday Matters: A New York Diary" teaches readers to open their lives to creativity and fulfillment by relearning how to draw. Handwritten and illustrated in color throughout.

as someone that honestly believes that I couldn't draw my way out of a box, I loved this book ... it gave me courage to learn to draw, to turn things around and view them from another angle. as a photographer it also gave me insight to looking at things from a different 'eye', to notice light and the varying color of shadow. I've already recommended it to several people, and I highly encourage anyone that has an interest in wanting to change their field of vision to check this book out ... it's a good read.
