PRAISE FOR I AM AN ARTIST

"A great workbook for young artists and adults beginning/wanting to do art. It's packed full of useful exercises and inspiration, as well as stories from working artists. I really enjoyed the flexibility and suggestions for ways to get inspiration flowing."
-Meryl Stenhouse, Author

"By tackling basic art concepts through the opinion of several different artists, Z.R. Southcombe gets to create a guide that is fit for anyone looking to bring more art into their lives. Apart from the clear and concise tips, one of its best characteristics is the honesty with which the artists tackle the topics. In one point, an artist states that they didn't learn to draw by spending hours shading still life in a studio, but by drawing over the lines in their coloring book. That kind of statement helps beginners, like myself, understand that there's no one exact way to learn how to create art, apart from by practicing. My only complaint with this book, really, would be that I found it to be too short. Still, its shortness implies that the ideas presented are clear and to-the-point, which keeps the reader engaged. 5/5 stars"
-Sofia, Goodreads Review
