Portraying people is undoubtedly one of the most difficult aspects of drawing. Expressions, movements, emotions and gazes add a series of challenges not present in still life and landscape techniques. In addition, the scant number of books specifically about drawing children leave many of the particularities related to the portrayal childhood unresolved. This book fills this void, offering a method for acquiring a good command of painting and illustration techniques. Using live models, photographs, videos, drawings of faces and entire bodies, either posing or simply naturally, the book explains step by step the specific characteristics of drawing children. Through an introduction to proportions and by teaching readers how to sketch more freely, it captures both the physical and psychological transformation in an exercise in introspection and memory of one's own childhood. The book is intended for illustrators and lovers of drawing, parents and relatives, and anyone else who wants to capture the memorable, enchanting and fleeting moment associated with childhood. Because, in reality, drawing is learning how to see, how to understand and how to love.

Both inspirational and practical, Black and White Graphics showcases the appealing impact of using monochrome color schemes in the field of graphic design, and it presents an international collection of work that makes clear the capabilities of black, white, and gray. The posters, publications, labels, corporate communications, and other projects selected show that this achromatic combination can, at the same time as keeping a project’s budget to a minimum, elevate the value of graphic design, facilitate communication, and enhance the project’s dramatic effect by limiting design elements to those which are absolutely necessary. For black is not simply black, and white is not only white. There are endless possibilities that lie between the two, within the infinite palette of grays. In fact, black and white make for a timeless combination of colors that has been a popular choice for graphic designers for years. Simple, vintage, and sometimes elegant, black and white are the colors that capture viewers’ attention by simply reducing colors to the basics and therefore leading the focus back to the visual message that a graphic design tries to express.
