When Cara Bean isn’t drawing her own comics, she’s encouraging others (through workshops & classes & an encouraging personality) to get more comfortable with drawing. In Why Draw, Cara explores both why you should draw, and how to get past any drawing hang-ups you might have.
Cara backs up her reasons why you should draw with real research by real scientists. When it comes to tips on how to draw without all the hang-ups grown-ups bring to a blank page, Cara uses years of teaching experience, plus quotes from the likes of Louis Bourgeois and Hokusai Katsushika.
Cara’s drawings are light and charming, seemingly effortless and simple, they exude a positive vibe, and encouragement for anyone thinking about picking up a pencil!
