What better way to celebrate Florida Bookstore Day than with a Book Launch Party! Join local illustrator, beloved art teacher and now AUTHOR, Robbie Lee, on Saturday, October 3 for the launch of his new book "Perspective Made Easy" by Impact Press (2015).
Besides giving us a peak into his creative process, Robbie will be leading hands-on drawing demonstrations, so bring your imagination! Delicious treats will be provided by Audubon Park favorites La Femme du Fromage and Bikes, Beans and Bordeaux. Budding artists of all ages welcome!
Designed to teach readers of all skill levels how to draw the world around them- everything from cars, rooms, and landscapes to rockets, furniture, and pants- with realistic and convincing depth, Perspective Made Easy's format is a colorful blend of a comic and traditional step-by-step instruction.
Plus rumor has, it's pretty dang funny too.
