Sam Shaker’s Review

Art I Love
Sam Shaker

Have you always had a burning desire to sketch or draw? If so, Sam Shaker’s book is for you. Shaker’s book breaks down the artistic process into stages, from the beginning sketches of portraits to the final outcome. Shaker believes that the purpose of art is to inspire new thoughts. I believe Shaker accomplishes much more than this in this wonderful book.

Shaker has a gift for sketching portraits of people. Most readers, especially artists, will be transported by the simplicity and beauty of these sketches. He outlines the process of producing these artistic masterpieces from beginning to end. As the reader follows Shaker’s step-by-step process, (s)he will be able to create his/her own unique art work.

Shaker has known poverty and hardship. He started as a street artist painting portraits in Paris. Passers-by saw and recognized his raw talent and artistic gifts first hand. Shaker has sketched a lot of portraits in his lifetime, and his rare gift has brought him out of poverty in Paris.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It will transport the reader to a new appreciation of art like no other. What a true masterpiece of artistic talent!
