Cartooning the Landscape is framed by a loose narrative in which a young manís search for wisdom is fulfilled by a comics shop owner who instructs him not only in the essentials of illustrating but in how to see. The book takes us on a whirlwind series of journeys and is also a plea, in an era increasingly dominated by digitally rendered images, for a new appreciation of the art of hand drawing.

     Only through the physical act of drawing can we understand what we see. Drawing can be used to learn, to analyze, to see, to record, and to give form to the gesture of thoughts. Every chapter of Drawing the Landscape shows you how you can do the very same and bring a new vitality to your drawing. Drawing the Landscape will enable you to gain the skills and confidence to create your own powerful and personally satisfying vision of the natural landscape.
