Sketch like a Boss! – When life gives you lemons…

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!

Take every feedback seriously :-).

Coming Soon… Sketch like a Boss!

I am very excited to share that my new art instruction book ‘Sketch like a Boss!’ is almost complete. It’s currently undergoing the copy editing phase, and will be published by the end of June.

This is by far the most ambitious book I have written. It has 20 step-by-step exercises, ranging from simple to complex subjects. The print book length is a whopping 375 pages!

Unlike my earlier books, this will be available widely on all e-book platforms and possibly, multiple print platforms.

The Leaf

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 🙂
