This guide combines the talents of two of Britain's leading animal illustrators of the 20th century, joining Raymond Sheppard's Drawing at the Zoo and Charles Tunnicliffe's How to Draw Farm Animals for the first time in a single-volume edition. Artists of all skill levels will benefit from the book's tremendous variety of domestic and wild animal studies, each accompanied by helpful pointers.
British illustrator Raymond Sheppard (1913-1958) was celebrated for his drawings of nature and animals for books and magazines. He published three art instructional books with Studio Publications and is perhaps best remembered for a 1952 edition of The Old Man and the Sea, which he co-illustrated with Charles Tunnicliffe. British naturalist painter Charles Tunnicliffe (1901-1979) was raised on a farm in rural England. His long and prolific career encompassed illustrations for more than 250 books, and he is noted for his depictions of birds and animals in their natural habitats. Tunnicliffe was actively involved in the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.
