642 Things to Draw: Journal by Chronicle Books

642 Things to Draw: Journal642 Things to Draw: Journal by Chronicle Books
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This deceptively simple and addictive sketchbook-with-content includes tons of hip and entertaining things to draw. Encourages artists to try their hands at things like a bike, mistakes, Fred Astaire, synchronized swimmers, a sippy cup, RUN DMC, feelings, a waffle, the view from an airplane, and many many more

So I absolutely love this book. It will inspire even the reluctant artist. It is not intimidating and has different sized spaces for different items. I have been drawing with my husband and we have had a little 'draw off' for each item. We have had so much fun filling in the pages and have lots more to continue with.

We have only been using pencil to create our drawings, however you could use a range of media, water colour, acrylic, pastels or even graphite. We have mentioned that we think the book would be really great to put in our hallway so when guests come over they have to leave us a drawing and a little message. This would also be great in a hotel room as you could ask guests to leave a little drawing for you.

If you are expecting images in this book to insipire you, you will be disappointed as there are just written inspiration such as a rolling pin, fire escape etc. For us this was enough. :) This is a great book that will keep you entertained for hours. I would love to check out others in this range. I would certainly buy this as a gift for others and recommend it.

I would like to thank the publisher for sending this in exchange for an honest review.
