As an artist I believe in drawing one thing every day. This book has pages of things to draw and the spaces in which to draw them; from a quarter of a page to a whole page. You can draw from life or use your imagination. Open to any page, pick an item and draw.
Because the book gives you the object to be drawn, you draw things you would not normally think of. So for anybody who likes to draw it is great fun. I have completed some of the drawings in pen and ink, Graphite pencil, pencil crayon, pen and ink with light watercolour washes even wax crayon.
When finished it will be a source of materials for picture book illustrations, for others it will just be a source of great fun. I highly recommend this book.

Really great book, I've found it really useful to draw things that I don't usually draw. Also book is chunky but isn't heavy at all so it's portable enough to use whilst you're out and about.

Got this book for my birthday and I love it. I am not a great drawer but just need something to inspire me and get me into it. This seems to do the job. It is a blank book and won't teach you but it should inspire you.

Was delighted with this book which I bought for a teenager who was thrilled with it. Suitable for any age and a great gift to have as a "just in case" present!

If you're looking for a step by step guide to drawing, including lighting and composition ... etc. this isn't likely to be the book for you.
If, on the other hand, you are comfortable with not knowing and embracing imagination/memory then you're likely to find these prompts intriguing. I can understand why some reviews claim that this book is a "rip off", it is an empty space with words like .. a burrito ... a skateboard ... a mirage etc. So for someone who needs to be told what to do/how to do it, this causes understandable anxiety. The thing that I like about this book is that it challenges our sense that we know the world, so that when confronted with words like - an antelope, or - bricks, we are forced to think A) What they look like and B) what sorts of marks would be most appropriate in trying to create an image of an antelope. If approached as an imaginative project then, despite my serious review, I'm certain hours of fun will ensue.

A great book for anyone who either wants to learn to draw, just likes to doodle or who is passionate about art, and it makes you think a little too - highly recommended.

Bought as a Christmas present for a retired person - reasonably priced and I think it will be fun for them to do the suggested activities
