When life gives you lemons, make a lemonade. And when life throws negative reviews at you, use them as inspirations for the next books!
In September last year, I published my first book, Get-Set-Sketch. I got a negative review where the reviewer mentioned that the instructions were not so great and were perfunctory. However, he also mentioned that the step-by-step demonstration at the end was the best part.
So I thought, why not use this feedback as the basis of the next book? And thus was born ‘Sketch like a Boss!’, a drawing instruction book with 20 such step-by-step demos! And the next part of this series is already in the pipeline.
And it’s already reached #1 new release in Graphic design category on Amazon USA!
As per the communication received from Feedpost, “I personally give you a high-five and want to thank you for your contribution to this world. This is the most comprehensive list of Top 20 Art Blogs on the internet and I’m honored to have you as part of this!”
One of the exercises in my upcoming book about pen sketching. The book has 25+ exercises divided by complexity (Simple, Medium and Complex).
Each sketch is divided into 10-12 steps, where I
explain the principles of how to draw lines and shapes, determine the
shadows, and shading method. Here, you can see three of the total 11
steps in this illustration.
Stay tuned! The book is expected to hit the stores by the end of June. Working overtime to meet the deadline 🙂

a workbook with step-by-step demos of drawing sketches using pens only.
This is one of the “simple” drawings covered in the book.
Today morning with Pune Urban Sketchers. The session was at Mrutyunjajeshwar temple. I decided on this vantage point of an overhead pedestrian bridge. The morning shadows were a perfect opportunity for some experimentation.
