It’s the first thing anyone looks at when there’s a figure in a painting: the details of the human head and face. There’s far more to creating an accurate portrait than meets the eye, and that’s exactly what this extremely focused, richly visual guide teaches artists. The amount of information here is truly astounding, and it offers help for anyone struggling to master the technique. The study starts with the basic shapes, planes, forms, and values of the head. There’s a "map” to follow as a model, a discussion of anatomy, suggestions for capturing profiles and angled views, advice on recognizing what makes a face individual, historical photos to examine, and so much more. No other art book is its equal on the subject.

'Signals From The Child' provides an overview of the meanings behind children's drawings. How many parents, teachers or grandparents are looking for additional ways to connect to and understand the feelings and perceptions of the toddler or teen? We are reminded to use common sense and to remember that 'sometimes a drawing is just a drawing.' Then we are taken on a heady trip through original, delightful sketches on almost every page, describing the symbolism present in buttons, birds, the details of a house, how the body parts are drawn, the position of the people on the page, the pressure used in the drawing, sun, clothing, sky, a chapter on the tree drawing at different ages, stick figures, the mystery of numbers, and even some unhappy signals we hope not to see.
