Draw Some Awesome
January 19, 2022
Do you love to draw? Are you constantly looking for new ideas for your drawings? Or maybe you just need some good tips? Well, you’ll find them packed inside this amazing book.
Draw Some Awesome by award-winning illustrator Donovan Bixley is an absolute must-have for any kind of artist, young or old. It is full of tips and tricks for better drawing, and you will feel inspired as soon as you open the first page.
From perspective to composition and everything in between, this book is full to the brim with everything an artist needs. It highlights every little detail in drawing and inspires you to be creative with every single stroke of the pencil.
I loved this book because the author encourages us to be creative with all styles of drawings. He shows us many different ways to do this throughout the book. For example, he takes a random household item, say, a high heeled shoe, and with a bit of imagination, that shoe suddenly becomes a spaceship heading off to the moon!
I enjoyed how Donovan Bixley tells us a bit about himself and his drawing at the start of the book. He describes his own journey to becoming an illustrator but doesn’t bore us with words. Instead, he uses pictures and short sentences to get his point across, making me want to turn the page to read more.
I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone and everyone. I believe that every single person has an arty talent hidden somewhere, be it big or small, and this book will help them find it!
