Buy This Book!!!!!






I want to give a huge shout out and a plug for my good friend Mark McDonnell who recently published an awesome book titled,"The Art and Feel of Making It Real: Gesture Drawing for the Animation and Entertainment Industry.". It's loaded with amazing drawings and sketches. Mark's ability to capture the essence of the pose and personality of the figure is incredible. He's also an awesome visdev artist and truly one of thee nicest guys in the biz!

The book is available at his store and at Stuart Ng's.

Great job Mark!!!

I have to agree, this is one of the best books on sketching for our industry that you can buy today. No personal library would be complete without it.

Hi John,

Sorry to get off the subject of this thread but I had placed an order with you for your sketchbook Bits & Pieces and had paid through Paypal. I still have not received the book and tried a few times to contact you with out any luck. If you could get back to me about this, this would be great.

Best,
Rodney

Dear John,

You've always been an inspiration for countless years,eversince ive started my journey in the world of animation and art.
Currently 've been working hard to prepare my portfolio for pixar.
Im from India,which in itself states that i get very little mentoring on how to prepare one.
would really like to get an advice from you as to how you would do if you would have to send one.
Its going to help me a lot for sure.

sorry for bothering you but i would be obliged to get an answer sir.

would you mind looking at my work?

thank you

Thanks for posting this link John. And I would be more than happy to sign each copy and do a personal sketch for anyone who purchases a copy to show my gratitude. It's a 208 page whopper of a book and a mere 2 years in the making!
