Draw Every Day, Draw Every Way (Guided Sketchbook) : Sketch, Paint, and Doodle Through One Creative Year
About the book
Embarking on a daily creative project has become a phenomenon in recent years. Conceived by illustrator Jennifer Orkin Lewis, this guided journal is both a container and a cheerleader for carving out a moment of self-expression each day. To conquer the intimidating prospect of filling 365 blank spaces, Lewis divides the journal into twelve monthly themes and provides prompts suggesting what to draw each day. Each month begins with an inspiring tutorial that shows you how to draw with different materials: ballpoint pens, metallic gel pens, coloured pencils, paint and collage. The entries are not dated. You can work through the journal from front to back, or jump around and draw whatever appeals to you at the moment.
Jennifer Lewis Biography
Jennifer A. Lewis (born 1964) is an American materials scientist and engineer, best known for her research on colloidal assembly of ceramics and 3D printing of functional, structural, and biological materials.In 2017, Lewis was elected a member of the National Academy of Engineering for the development of materials and processes for 3-dimensional direct fabrication of multifunctional structures.
Education and early careerLewis graduated with a B.S. degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with high honors in ceramic engineering in 1986 and earned a Sc.D. in ceramic science from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1991 under the direction of Michael J. Cima. The title of her dissertation is Binder Distribution Processes in Ceramic Green Tapes During Thermolysis. From 1990 to 1997 she was an assistant professor at the University of Illinois, and was also affiliated as a research professor with the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology.
Recent careerLewis was promoted to associate professor in 1997 and to professor in 2003. In 2002, she co-edited the book Polymers in Particulate Systems: Properties and Applications to which she also contributed a chapter titled "Colloid-filled Polymer Gels: a Novel Approach to Ceramics Fabrication". In 2006 Lewis was named interim director and subsequently became director of UIUC's Frederick Seitz Materials Research Laboratory in 2007.In 2013 she moved to Harvard University as Hansjörg Wyss Professor of Biologically Inspired Engineering in Harvard's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
ResearchLewis's laboratory works on the directed assembly of soft functional materials. This work involves microfluidics, materials synthesis, complex fluids, and robotic assembly to design functional materials. She develops novel materials that can find potential application as printed electronics, waveguides, and 3D scaffolds and microvascular architectures for cell culture and tissue engineering. She co-leads the Wyss Institute's 3D Organ Engineering Initiative.In 2013, Lewis' team released the world's first 3D printed battery, made from two different electrode inks.As of early 2017, Lewis is the author of more than 160 papers and holds 11 patents, including patents for inventions as varied as methods to 3D print functional human tissue and microbattery cells.She is a founder of Voxel8, a company that manufactures a 3D printing platform capable of printing new functional materials, whose investors include In-Q-Tel and Braemar Energy Ventures. Voxel8 has created the world's first multi-material 3D electronics printer. In January 2015, Lewis told Business Wire: "Voxel8 is leveraging over a decade of research, which has led to 17 patents (10 issued) on functional materials, printheads, and other processes for 3D printing, from my lab.… Our work provides the foundation for Voxel8’s effort to revolutionize multi-material 3D printing."Lewis is also a co-f ...
