These two art-instructional books represent the two sides of my artistic brain. And I suppose, most of the useful knowledge gained over my 20 odd years as a working artist.
Somehow I have been simultaneously an avid street sketcher and travelling watercolorist, AND a digital artist and video game designer.
Though it might not seem like it at first, the two art forms have a lot to do with each other. They’re both about telling stories, and describing people and places with drawings. My non-fiction travel sketching is a tremendous asset to my imaginative work – (filling the memory banks with ideas!) – but the theatricality and fantastic elements of gaming art have always brought a special something to my street sketches.
I hope, dear reader, you’re one of the few who appreciate both art forms. Or if not, you know someone who wants to follow one of these diverging paths.

Oh, and truly – thanks very much for your support! Every book purchase does a bit toward supporting this blog. It’s my great pleasure to keep bringing you my tips and tricks on drawing and painting here on Citizen Sketcher.
