About the Author
Jake Spicer is an artist, author and teacher based between Brighton, UK and Arthog, North Wales. He is head tutor of the independent art school organisation 'Draw' and is co-director of the Drawing Circus. Jake's teaching focuses on making drawing accessible to everybody, on the understanding that everybody with the will to draw has the capacity to learn to draw and anybody that can draw can always learn to draw better. Jake writes instructional drawing books for Ilex Press which aim to help people engage more with drawing, whatever their level of ability.
Jake also holds monthly drawing workshops at our Cass Art Islington store. Click here to see his upcoming workshops.
