Books that make drawing easy and fun! A tribute to Joy Sikorski.
This 2008 post about Joy Sikorski's books is still a popular post on my blog.
Awhile back someone emailed me and told me the link to Joy's site was not working. I couldn't find another site so I just changed the link to point to her author page on Amazon.
Yesterday I noticed on my stats how many hits the post is still getting so I decided to try to find a way to contact her to see if there was another place she wanted me to link, and to see if she wanted to do an update. In my search I found that Joy passed away from ovarian cancer in 2009 at age 57. I am so saddened by this and remember how nice she was to me when I asked her if it was okay to use this image from her site:
Yesterday I ordered "How to Draw a Happy Witch" since it's one I don't have. It's still for sale directly from Amazon. Amazon also has her books for sale from other sellers (new and used).
I read this article about Joy and love this quote:
I hope my legacy is to let everyone know that they can draw, it's easy and fun! And to be silly, which helps in everything in life. - Joy Sikorski
Joy's books are so fun and I wanted to post this as a thanks to her for sharing her creative talents.
