I find that it's good to sometimes get back to the basics of art, and this book defiantly did that! It teaches you to be an artist from the heart, before you can become a technical artist. I filled up many blank pieces of paper in doing the exercises recommended in the book. It helped me build me self confidence with breaking the boundaries of conventional art, and taught me that art is nothing without creativity.
Thought this was a really wonderful book for the artist who needs to loosen up or reactivate the creativity that may have been stifled. There is a ton of great advice and exercises that I have even used for drawing programs with kids. It is definitely for any type of artist whether you deal with fabric, collage, painting, drawing, etc.
