the art of Ed Emberly

When I was a kid I used to go nuts over Ed Emberly's many mammoth drawing books. The pages are packed with little characters, and he shows you how to draw them using simple lines and shapes. You can't get the full effect from these images, you really have to see the books as a whole, so I highly recommend picking up a few, especially if you have a kid you want to introduce to drawing. I wonder if Tom Gauld was influenced by Emberly? Their figures are similar.
