Gesture Drawing book at CTN-X 2012

It's an 11th hour decision but I'll have a booth at CTN-X this year with my book on Gesture Drawing.  I'll be sharing a table with the Happy Beaver himself Mr Jeff Pidgeon-come see us next week!

I've received really great feedback for my first modest publication, many thanks to everyone who bought it and wrote back;

"I've just received your book today! Love it! Thanks again!"
"Wonderful gesture book, Matt. Strong drawing, lively gestures, and all wrapped in a great presentation. Looking at your book is also making me look forward to my next life drawing class this week!"

"I just received the book. Awesome man! It's real nice to see what you are doing, how you're pushing the poses, etc. Thanks so much, I'm looking forward to your next book! -no pressure;)"

"This book is amazing. I read the Drawn to Life books… which was VERY repetitive… and well I wish I saw bigger drawings and less repetition of text. You answered that completely. Love these gestures… and most importantly you have cartoonish gestures, where most books cover more life drawing style gestures. Good stuff! Make more books!"


"I received your book last week and it rocks. It's really inspirational, as you said and I want to study every pose because I think I can learn a lot."

Hello Matt, got the book a few days ago and it's fantastic - really very inspiring - and jam-packed with sketchy goodness. The brief intro is very encouraging. Thanks for the sketch too! Right, now to have a go myself. It's not going to be easy after all these years of trying to draw exactly what I see.
