Can anyone suggest a good book to improve my drawing skills? Basically I suck at it.

I have that book too...and I started it. It did seem good, but it was sooo boring. I just can't do blind contour for hours straight. I liked the concept of the book and think that if someone made it through the entire course, they'd improve vastly. I just don't have the attention span.

Right now I am using "Drawing as a Sacred Activity" by Heather Williams. Not bad, but it won't be my only source.
