About the Book

Inspired by the Paul Klee quote, this is an unconventional adult drawing book, in which readers are encouraged to think outside the box in terms of making drawings and art.

Each beautiful page contains instructions that can be open to interpretation, allowing for maximum creative freedom. There are no rules and no artistic skills are required – all that is needed is a free mind and simple drawing and colouring pens and pencils to get started.

Drawers can consider such ideas as ‘What would it look like if yellow had an argument with blue?’ or ‘What does a line look like if it’s skipping?’. They can also be inspired by creative drawing tasks such as drawing themselves from their imaginations and creating shapes that have emotions. Each page is designed to make drawers free their creative ideas and challenge any fear they may have about conventional drawing.

This book has a gorgeous artistic feel, with stylish colours and artwork to help readers feel encouraged. It will inspire anyone who is interested in drawing to pick up a pencil and let their imaginations grow.
