This is a fundamental drawing course designed specifically for children's book illustrators. In this video and PDF manual/workbook you will be shown how to use the "bean" shape to create 3 dimensional figures. The object of this class is to help you learn how to begin drawing a figure from any angle, attach limbs and head, and pose your character in any direction and from any angle. This is extremely helpful when creating comp sketches for dummy books and final sketches with your characters. Learning how to deviate from your reference to get the camera angle you want for the perspective you want is invaluable in the creation of original children's book illustration.

The Souls of White Folk: African American Writers Theorize Whiteness by Veronica T. Watson
English | August 23th, 2013 | ISBN: 161703889X | 183 Pages | True PDF | 1.04 MB

The Souls of White Folk: African American Writers Theorize Whiteness is the first study to consider the substantial body of African American writing that critiques whiteness as social construction and racial identity. Arguing against the prevailing approach to these texts that says African American writers retreated from issues of “race” when they wrote about whiteness, Veronica T. Watson instead identifies this body of literature as an African American intellectual and literary tradition that she names “the literature of white estrangement.”

Imperial Women Writers in Victorian India: Representing Colonial Life, 1850-1910

Imperial Women Writers in Victorian India: Representing Colonial Life, 1850-1910 By Éadaoin Agnew
English | PDF | 2017 | 208 Pages | ISBN : 3319331949 | 7.4 MB

This book is about Victorian women’s representations of colonial life in India. These accounts contributed to imperial rule by exemplifying an idealized middle-class femininity and attesting to the Anglicisation of the subcontinent. Writers described familiarly feminine modes of experience, focusing on the domestic environment, household management, the family, hobbies and pastimes, romance and courtship and their busy social lives. However, this book reveals the extent to which their lives in India bore little resemblance to their lives in Britain and suggests that the acclaimed transportation of the home culture was largely an ideological construct iterated by women writers in the service of the Raj. In this way, they subverted the constraints of Victorian gender discourses and were part of a growing proto-feminism.

Ever since Ezra Pound's exhortation to 'make it new', experimentation has been a hallmark of contemporary literature. Ranging from the modernists, through the Beats to postmodernism and contemporary 'hyperfiction', this is a unique introduction to experimental fiction. Creative exercises throughout the book help students grapple with the many varieties of experimental fiction for themselves, deepening their understanding of these many forms and developing their own writing skills.
