New Theme and a New Book (by Tommy Kane)!

I just bought a new book called "An Excuse to Draw Tommy Kane Sketches The World" by Tommy Kane. He is one of the awesome teachers at the Sketchbook Skool. Tommy's been drawing since he was a very young child. Drawing was his way of coping with Social Anxiety. He now travels all over the world drawing the sights and places he sees. The book is hard bound, 215 pages. Chocked FULL of full page photos of his art that knocks me to my knees it's so good.

I got my copy from The Book Depository, free shipping and it came in a weeks time or less. Very fast. $28.77. Well worth every penny.

It's the last day of April. Tomorrow we start a new THEME: May 1 to May 15: "Animals", (real, imagined, stuffed, etc), Melisa Mc Curley
Have fun with it.

Today I feel like a lion, no, a bear, no, a cat? Who am I?

Thanks to Elisa Choi for the fun we had drawing our art supplies and Humans and their Activities in April!


  1. I'm sure his book is fantastic. Someone else was talking about it recently.

  2. I loved all the drawings of art supplies and the new theme of animals is going to be lots of fun!
    I LOVE Tommy Kane! Enjoy your book! :)

  3. Hi Lynn, I have been meaning to mention that I find the purple colour font really hard to read on the dark grey background -- maybe it's just my computer, but just thought I'd let you know.

    Excited to get on to a new theme!

    1. I have gone back to try to get rid of the purple and I cannot find for the life of me where this can be done. So sorry. Maybe Ann can take a look?

    2. I did it, I did it, I did it! I finally figured out how to change the purple to yellow. Sorry it took so long.
