Drawing Directors: Volume I (Hardcover)
For many decades, film director Randal Kleiser (Grease, The Blue Lagoon, White Fang) has been drawing sketches of other fellow directors using a technique called blind contour drawing, where you trace the lines of the subject with your eye and simultaneously draw with a pen on the paper without looking down. The difficulty was that the subjects moved or changed positions in mid-sketch and many of the attempts were thrown away. This is a collection of the ones that worked.
With a foreword by Roger Corman, Drawing Directors pays tribute to many of the best film directors, including Steven Spielberg, John Singleton, Ron Howard, Guillermo del Toro, Robert Wise, and Billy Wilder. The author recounts their professional career and reveals anecdotes about them and his personal opinion about their work.
