2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 12 Jan 2013
Very small book - not worth the money, needs to be much larger in order to draw in it properly.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great art and doodling book for everyone! 14 Oct 2011
By S. Kira Harding - Published on Amazon.com
Just because it says `Art Journaling for Boys' on the cover doesn't mean this little thing isn't for everyone.

A bit more refined and focused than `Doodle Diary,' `Doodle Sketchbook' is full of grunge, graffiti, and dripping paint. While there are prompts aimed towards boys, such as decorating skateboards & surf boards, the journal contains a ton of fun prompts. I feel like a kid myself when I open to a random page to get my doodle on -- such as drawing droids, collaging the Zombie Apocalypse, tracing my hand, or Scribbling a Cityscape.

What I like most about this sketchbook is how it truly is one you can share with anyone -- I can imagine my nieces and nephews playing alone with me as we draw bugs or doodle on photos of our friends. Created as an art journal for boys, `Doodle Sketchbook' definitely breaks the bounds of its subtitle, engaging all of us to dream a little bigger, reflect a bit, and have, most of all, fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Art Doodle For boys 28 Oct 2011
By M. Schemanski - Published on Amazon.com
Much more than a basic sketchbook!!
Suggestions for decorating the pages with collages, photos, clipart, rubber stamping, and a wide variety of mediums to make the book your own.
Thicker pages allow for attaching other paper and designs right to the book.

Geared for boys to let their imagination run wild. Decorate an ipod drawing, learn urban alphabets, doodle a sci fi world, draw creatures, design with stickers and more. Original in the journaling prompts and designs. Boys are going to love this small book they can throw in their back pack.
Great boredom buster.
Great gift giving idea for any boy ages 8 and up.
I received a copy of this book from Gibbs-Smith in an exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book!!! 23 Dec 2012
By Lyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Again, the backgrounds are fantastic and inspire me to make some of my own multimedia work. I'm 70 and female and wanted ideas and adore this book. LIke it even more than the girl's art journal.

I chose it because I figured it was perfect to inspire me to experiment. I've always been afraid and my inner critic always shot me down and I let him or it. I am so looking forward to trying some of the pages in the book. the next thing to over come is, "You can't use those pages! It will ruin them."

5.0 out of 5 stars The Doodle Sketchbook is great fun, and isn't just for boys! 8 Oct 2011
By Melody - Published on Amazon.com
160 pages long and filled with both color and substance, the Doodle Sketchbook is filled with prompts designed to get you busy art journaling. It begins with how to art journal, moves on to tools and attachment methods, and then moves on to prompts.

Prompts include things like My Colors (your personal color palette), I Like to Eat... (journaling your favorite foods), and Globe Trotting (where in the world you'd like to travel). This book is perfect for the beginning art journaler, but would be a fun exercise for an experienced art journaler too.

Intended for a younger audience (ages 8 and up), some pages might not apply to an adult that uses the book - like Favorite Class Subject or Ode to High Tops. However, adults can either indulge their inner child, or use a particular spread of pages for some other type of art journaling - like collage.

Small, portable, and sturdy, this book is easy to carry around and makes a great gift. Give the Doodle Sketchbook to someone on your gift list along with a glue stick, some pens, and a small pair of scissors, and you've got a sure-fire winner - a gift that will introduce (or re-introduce) the recipient to a fun form of self-expression. A great find!

5.0 out of 5 stars Doodle Sketchbook: For the kid in all of us 21 Oct 2011
By Seth Apter - Published on Amazon.com
Not being a 'doodler' and not having seen Dawn's previous book Doodle Diary: Art Journaling for Girls, I did not know what to expect from this book. My first reaction was that I loved the size (approximately 7" x 5") and the cool cover (splattered and grungy). As I flipped through the pages I discovered that this was a book to play with and play in. It briefly covers tips and tools for art journaling but the bulk of its 160 pages are for journaling. Every page has a different background and a different prompt. The reader is encouraged to follow the prompts and add their own art and journaling. As such, this book is in the style of Keri Smith's 'Wreck This Journal.'

The book has a graffiti-like feel and the splatters and splashes of brightly colored, painted pages really drew me in. Examples of the journaling prompts include Doodle your Typical Day as a Comic Strip, What I Found this Week, Collaged Alphabet, and Scribble a Cityscape. The book seems to be marketed to children, and to boys specifically. Personally I think that this would appeal to both boys and girls. And, although some prompts are definitely geared toward kids (such as Fave Class Subjects), I believe that adults would also love this book as it appeals to the kid in all of us.
