New Book for the ‘Draw Like an Artist’ Series from Quarto Publishing
Posted 9 months ago and submitted by Melissa Washburn | Share link:

My third book with Quarto Publishing, “Draw Like an Artist: 100 Birds, Butterflies & Other Insects” is now available for pre-order! Following up on “100 Flowers and Plants” and “100 Realistic Animals”, this volume shows you step-by-step how to draw a wide variety of winged creatures, with over 600 sketches. A visual reference for the student, hobbyist, or crafter, this has been my favorite volume so far to work on.

I had the pleasure of commissioning Melissa to create a fundraising illustration for dragonfly conservation. Melissa not only delivered a captivating image, on deadline, she also went above and beyond by hand-coloring each and every one of her prints. Melissa is a talented professional who understands the big impact of small details and going the extra mile. I wholeheartedly endorse Melissa as an illustrator, a professional, and a genuinely nice person.
