Description - Drawn from Life by E. H. Shepard

Following "Drawn From Memory", this is the second volume of memoirs by the artist of "Winnie the Pooh" and "The Wind in the Willows". It describes Shepard's experiences through school, his student days and his marriage to a fellow art student shortly after he had succeeded, at the age of 24, in getting a picture hung at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. These memoirs end on his wedding day, facing married life with #70 in the bank as his total financial resources, and yet full of hope and confidence for the future. Ernest Shepard, "Kipper" to his friends, was born in 1879. He attended art school at the Royal Academy and served in World War I, after which he made his living as an artist and political cartoonist for "Punch" magazine.
