this book draws on her previous work "drawing on the right side of the brain" but takes things further in pursue of creativity. there are really interesting exercises here, some of them go beyond developing the skill of drawing realistically, in fact they shun it completely in favor of trying to find ways of approaching any given problem. i did most of them and i must say that it was an interesting path into unexpected realizations. i think this book goes far into giving an insight on how to think visually, or how to use visual skills to think about problems that don't seem visual at all. drawing as hacking into your brain.

Epigraph
The mind in creation is as a fading coal which some invisible influence, like an inconstant wind, awakens to transitory brightness;  this arises from within...and the conscious portions of our natures are unprophetic either of its approach or of its departure. - Percy Bysshe Shelley
Dedication
I am grateful to my family, friends, colleagues, and students for encouraging me throughout this project.  I dedicate this book to all of them.
