Rex is a student currently enrolled in my foundation drawing class at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan New York. Rex is from Shanghai China. Her story is pretty unbelievable.
She was a physics major in hight school, not an art major. Considering how good she is at drawing it’s pretty incredible to witness her raw talent. Rex’s sketchbook shows her very raw talent and I thank her very much for sharing it.
Her talent combined her tireless work ethic is a lethal combination for success. During the first couple of classes I had a hard time convincing Rex to draw in a big 18 x 24 drawing pad. She actually said she didn’t want to waste the paper.
That really made me smile. I immediately said Rex please, I will buy you a pad, you have to draw in a big drawing pad during class. She agreed and for the rest of the semester she has really shined.
I hope you enjoyed looking through Rex’s sketchbook. The video was a little shaky but totally worth it.
Thanks for watching!
Just beautiful!!! How inspiring. If I did instragram I would be linking in a heartbeat. I am so glad Rex agreed to share her work.
Amazing sketchbook! So much talent. Incredible.
Wonderful-thank you Rex for sharing and Matt for filming. Of course, I’m paradoxically inspired and discouraged as I continue my own journey of sketching and drawing that I first began on my retirement 3 yrs ago and was introduced to Matt’s tutorial site by my Medical Illustrator friend!
Again, thank you Matt
Thanks for your feedback!! Rex is a special student to say the least.
Amazing work. Thanks for sharing this artist’s work.
Wow! I loved every page. Rex is really special. I hope she has a great career ahead of her!
OMG ! How amazing is this sketchbook. I have the idea that this girl doesn’t even realise just how good she is. I think buying a painting of hers now would be a good idea cause in 20 years time I don’t think I could afford one !
Absolutely brilliant and beautiful drawings.
