While some artists find endless opportunity on a blank page, others feel overwhelmed by its very blankness -- what to draw? Will it be any good? Author and Washington University professor John Hendrix
believes that Drawing Is Magic
. He shares ideas and exercises from this newly published book from 5 to 7 p.m. this evening at Subterranean Books (6275 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-862-6100 or www.subbooks.com
), and everyone from casual doodlers to serious artistes will leave inspired. With illustrations appearing everywhere from Esquire
to the New Yorker
, plus an impressive library of children's books, Hendrix speaks from experience and fills any room with contagious creative energy. Admission is free.
