The Drawing Club is an actual drawing club is real life based in Los Angeles where monthly drawing workshops are held. It was started in 2002 by Bob Kato, who's also an art teacher and now author. He has given drawing workshops at Disney so he has good credentials. I'm quite impressed by the commitment to run the club for more than a decade.
Each drawing session features a themed character. And anyone can join in the evening after work to relax and just draw, check out other people's work, interact. Bob Kato writes in a lively manner that makes me feel the energy and enthusiasm from the club.
This book is a culmination of drawing tips, motivation talk and work created by the members over the years.
This is a figure drawing book in essence, one that focuses on storytelling, in other words, creating a drawing that the audience knows instantly what's going on. It's not an anatomy book so there's nothing on muscles, bones or that a figure is the height of 7-8 heads.
The book is filled with tips on how you can draw an expressive figure, and also to make drawing more fun. Some examples are like giving a story to the posing characters, mixing media to try different styles, using different paper sizes to practice composition, playing with thin and thick lines, thinking about shapes and contours.
Bob Kato talks about lessons you can learn and the inspiration behind the artworks contributed by the members in the book. Every chapter has some exercises that allows you to experiment with different aspects of drawing. It's more on the purpose rather than the technical aspect of how you can render a specific effect.
The list of chapters are
What is a good drawing
Why is 2-D design so important?
Concept and story
What is funny?
It's an inspiring and helpful book should appeal to those into figure drawings.

Bob Kato perfectly captures the spirit of his workshops in this book. He draws lessons from the many amazing drawings contributed by the workshop artists, as well as from his own experiences as a master illustrator and professor at Art Center College of Design. The lessons and wonderful stories aside, this book also offers never-before-seen sketches and life drawings from Disney animators, Imagineers, designers, illustrators, story artists and hobbyists alike... get ready to want to draw!!
Bob Kato provides some really interesting exercises in the book to help the artist develop confidence by trying new things or looking at a project with a different point of view. The book is set up to help the artist learn how to work outside their comfort zone to translate their character from 3d onto paper and tell a story through their drawings.
I had a chance to listen to Bob Kato speak at the San Diego Comic Con 2014 show during his panel presentation. He talked about how at the Drawing Club the artists are given the opportunity to view and draw a costumed character (person) while getting a chance to develop their story telling skills. For those who cannot attend one of the Drawing Club sessions, this book is a good opportunity to learn from such a gifted artist.
You don't have to be a professional to enjoy the experience of drawing people from real life.The Drawing Club: Master the Art of Drawing Characters from Life by Bob Kato will help you change the way you think about drawing characters in 2D.
