Collector's Edition Pencil Drawings
- A look into the art of David J. Vanderpool
Paperback, 160 Pages
Starting off with the artist's top winning pencil drawings from 2010 through 2012, this autobiography style book allows the reader an opportunity to not only learn the process it took to complete most of his drawings created since 2008 but offers a personal look into who the artist is as a man.
From portraits to figure drawings, David J. Vanderpool shares how simple pencil lines can be used to create masterfully crafted drawings - all while working through obstacles he would later encounter as an artist. Proving that "art isn't always about who the artist is, but rather who catches his attention at that moment".
Although the drawings are created using black and white graphite, the pages here are full color glossy. Making the perfect Collector's Edition, as it picks up where the first edition left off and sharing many of his drawings created up until summer of 2016.
VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED: This book contains adult male nudity.

Portfolio - A Collection of Graphite Pencil Drawings
by David J. Vanderpool
Paperback, 130 Pages
Featuring over eighty-eight masterfully crafted graphite pencil drawings, from California portrait artist David J. Vanderpool, "Portfolio - A Collection of Graphite Pencil Drawings" offers the reader just that. A collection of his works between 2005-2016, and a brief look into who the artist is. "Brief" because this is actually a 'condensed' version to his autobiography-style book "Pencil Drawings - A look into the Art of David J. Vanderpool" where less is proven to be a good thing in this case. Less words but with a lot of drawings!
Ranging from portraits to figure drawings, this book holds nothing back as it offers the reader a collection of the artist's more sought after, award winning drawings. Yes, that means that viewer discretion is advised to those not interested in seeing drawings depicting adult male nudity.
