Brand-new full colour Early Reader story from DOCTOR WHO scriptwriter and Astrosaurs author, Steve Cole, about Monstar, the green furry monster who will love you to bits... possibly slightly squished bits!
Young Gabe's is a story of heartache and jubilation. He's a child slave freed after the Civil War. He sets off to reunite himself with his mother who was sold before the war's end. "Come morning, the folks take to the road again, singing songs, telling stories, and dream-talking of the lives they're gonna live in freedom. And I follow, keeping my eyes open for my mama. Days pass into weeks, and one gray evening as Mr. Dark laid down his coat, I see a woman with a yellow scarf 'round her neck as bright as a star. I run up to grab her hand, saying, Mama?" Gabe's odyssey in search of his mother has an epic American quality, and Keith Shepherd's illustrationsinfluenced deeply by the narrative work of Thomas Hart Bentonfervently portray the struggle in Gabe's heroic quest.

Hand Drawing for Designers: A Visual Guide for Drawing Fundamentals approaches the act of drawing as a communication tool that students will carry forth in the design firm. It also addresses why hand drawing is valued within design firms for conceptual design, design development, and client presentations. The progression of methods and concepts builds from an introduction to drawing methods and drawing rationale through two-dimensional drawing techniques, three-dimensional drawing techniques, and presentation drawings. Designed to strengthen a student's understanding of visual representation and technical drawing by visually teaching, this text provides students with the skills to translate three-dimensional ideas into two-dimensional drawings that effectively communicate their design concept. Despite the increased reliance on digital media, hand drawing remains a powerful tool in conceptual design presentations because it emphasizes the large idea by leaving fine details to the client's imagination. Features: -- Progressive introduction of concepts (chapters build on previous chapters), step-by-step drawing instructions, and visual examples -- Presents the concept of entourage by exploring different hand and digital based techniques to add people, furniture and landscape elements to drawings, with an emphasis on the scale of the drawing and the quantity of entourage -- Includes techniques using printed SketchUp models as a tool to generate hand drawn and hand drafted perspectives -- Demonstrates how to digitally render hand drawings, sketches, and diagrams in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator -- CD-Rom provides digital example files in Photoshop, Illustrator and SketchUp format -- Instructor's Guide includes course outlines, additional assignments and how to use the text in a variety of courses
