What how-to-draw book would you like best?

Greek Theatre Mask from the new book

Currently I’m working on a How to draw Ancient Greek Stuff book, which is proving more complicated that I’d imagined. The complications are mostly in the style and design of the book, which I want to be the basis of a continuing format.

Recently, when I mentioned it to a year three class – which would be 2nd Grade in the US – they cheered, what convinced me that I’m doing the right thing.

I’m planning to have all the artwork finished and the book ready early in the New Year, when I will launch it as a Kickstarter Project.

I’m already thinking about the next book in the series, so what do you think I should do next? Which subject matter would be most helpful in drawing generally or in school or home school curricula? I suppose this is market research. I’m turning into a publisher!
