Hobbs has collected a range of works by other artists to demonstrate what can be done with pen and ink. The book is in color and is printed wonderfully in this small 5"x8" size. This makes a great reference book and source of inspiration.

I just love this book. It's about eliminating the myths about creating art and about getting down to the business of making art. It mentions a lot about the pyschological and subconscious barriers that keep artist from making art.
By Danny Gregory
This book is very casual and light hearted. Full of exercises, this book inspires those people who are either too busy or too new to art to stop making excuses and make art.
