Fun With a Pencil by Loomis
MR. WEBSTER DEFINES DRAWING AS DELINEATION. THAT DOESN’T TELL YOU HOW MUCH OF A REAL “BANG” THERE IS IN IT. MAYBE HE NEVER KNEW. MOST FOLKS LOVE TO DRAW EVEN WHEN THEY KNOW LITTLE ABOUT IT. IT STARTED WITH THE CAVE MAN, AND STILL SURVIVES ON THE WALLS OF PUBLIC PLACES… BECAUSE IT’S SO MUCH FUN, AND SO EASY, IT’S A SHAME NOT TO BE ABLE TO DO IT BETTER. ALL THAT YOU NEED TO KNOW, TO START THIS BOOK, IS HOW TO DRAW A CIRCLE….
Nothing quite so haphazard, hit-or-miss, as the whole field of artistic endeavor. Author is not a cartoonist, but he choose caricature for the beginner: principally because there is fun in it, and from the start he want him to feel a little of the creative joy he is entitled to.
When artists begin to compile and set down their combined experience, give freely and humbly what little they can add, as do the other sciences, then art may have some chance to reestablish itself in the hearts of everyday people even against the mechanical perfection of the camera; even in a period of social adjustment and financial depression.
The mental depression of our era weighs heavier on our race and future than do our dollars or lack of them. A little joy from the inside must be welcome to almost anybody. Perhaps this book is a step in that direction.
You’ll get to love those little folks you draw, even if they are a bit unwieldy and only a little bit human.
