Book Club: Mark Hearld's Work Book

Another super fun Book Club yesterday!  We discussed Mark Hearld's Work Book.

It's a wonderful book, so let's dive right in:

I love instructional books because they are packed with tips and exercises. But you can still learn from non-instructional art books, like this one.  If you don't have time for the video above, or just want a quick recap, here's the recap:

This method means that you can learn from all kinds of artists -- dead and alive.

Here is a multi-block print I made inspired by Mark Hearld's work:

I tried a few color variations:

If you'd like to claim one of these beautiful prints for your own, they're $25/each.  Buy one here.

I also spent a long time thinking about two colors versus three.

2colorvs3-wm
I'm quite interested in pursuing this style of print some more. 

I hope you'll join me for the next Book Club: March 9 at 12:15pm.  We will be discussing Creative Strength Training by Jane Dunnewold.
