The View from the Cheap Seats draws together myriad non-fiction writing by international phenomenon and Sunday Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman. From Make Good Art, the speech that went viral, to pieces on artists and legends including Terry Pratchett and Lou Reed, the collection offers a glimpse into the head and heart of one of the most acclaimed writers of our time. 'If this book came to you during a despairing night, by dawn, you would believe in ideas and hope and humans again' Caitlin Moran 'Literature does not occur in a vacuum. It cannot be a monologue. It has to be a conversation' This collection will draw you in to exchanges on making good art and Syrian refugees, the power of a single word and playing the kazoo with Stephen King, writing about books, comics and the imagination of friends, being sad at the Oscars and telling lies for a living. Here Neil Gaiman opens our minds to the people he admires and the things he believes might just mean something - and welcomes us to the conversation too.

This book balances the need for detail with the need for spontaneity by establishing a connection between constructed perspective and freehand sketching. The techniques illustrated and discussed in this text enable students to design a space as they are drawing it. After studying the methods for constructing linear perspective, students produce a number of freehand sketches. They test each one with an overlay grid to verify the location of horizon lines, vanishing points, and other key elements. With practice, they develop the ability to find these key points intuitively while sketching, so that they can draw freely and confidently.

Senor and Senora Gaeta have seven daughters with the first name Maria, so they joyously welcome the birth of a son, Ruti. But a freak accident when he is five leaves the boy disabled. In their small Mexican village, tradition and superstition direct the course of daily life, and Ruti becomes the village outcast, more at home with animals than people except for his family, which he staunchly defends. The vicious attempted rape of his sister Maria Maria forces the family to move to the United States, where they settle in San Bernardino, California. Here the Gaeta family struggles to assimilate to life in the barrio during World War II. Their experiences reflect those of a generation of Mexican immigrants welcomed as cheap labor and yet hated and mistrusted as outsiders.

Rielle Mainline is a rock star with a hardcore image, a troubled heart, and a twenty–five–city tour to front with her band, Ice Queen. She should be ecstatic. But the tour includes Sydney and Rielle has spent years running away from that city. Jake Reed knows Rielle's reputation as a prize bitch will make being Ice Queen's tour manager a challenge, but Jake's confident he can handle her – until he meets her. Then he's off–balance, not sure if he wants to run as fast as he can towards or away from her. Sparks fly, tempers flare, and two loners are about to discover that being alone isn't the same as being lonely.

A stunning and timely creative call-to-arms combining four extraordinary written pieces by Neil Gaiman illustrated with the striking four-color artwork of Chris Riddell. “The world always seems brighter when you’ve just made something that wasn’t there before.”—Neil Gaiman Drawn from Gaiman’s trove of published speeches, poems, and creative manifestos, Art Matters is an embodiment of this remarkable multi-media artist’s vision—an exploration of how reading, imagining, and creating can transform the world and our lives. Art Matters bring together four of Gaiman’s most beloved writings on creativity and artistry: “Credo,” his remarkably concise and relevant manifesto on free expression, first delivered in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo shootings “Make Good Art,” his famous 2012 commencement address delivered at the Philadelphia University of the Arts “Making a Chair,” a poem about the joys of creating something, even when words won’t come “On Libraries,” an impassioned argument for libraries that illuminates their importance to our future and celebrates how they foster readers and daydreamers Featuring original illustrations by Gaiman’s longtime illustrator, Chris Riddell, Art Matters is a stirring testament to the freedom of ideas that inspires us to make art in the face of adversity, and dares us to choose to be bold.
