Zen of Seeing is not a how-to book. No drawing lessons here. Instead, pleasant drawings and inspirational messages (hand written) encourage the reader to let go of rules and inhibitions. Read full review

This book changed my life. Claske and Frederick both befriended me and i became a seeing drawer throughout my life and because of their encouragement I have a family of family drawings that trace my breath through the years since.i had the luxury of them befriending my family .They would send books and toys for my children.God's blessed and transformed my life at a very dark lonely place my late adolescence.I found purpose and love and later became free of monotonous work.yet whilst I had the life of a bureaucrat my drawings of commuters each day to and from work for twelve years became my conversation with them.people talk about urban sketching but the looseness and the fredom to see came from a none sketchy more sensitive and caring Dr Franck's invitation for the 'eye to fall in love' Amen
