The little cartoon girl on the front is more the focus of the book: it is mostly focused on doing cute children, a fox housewife, a fish putting on lipstick, a cartoon cat in a tutu, a frog playing a guitar, teddy bears, etc. but all in cartoon style. Not my style at all...and I have no kids which I feel is the main focus here: doing cute kid's drawings.
Too, there could have been so much more done here: Many pages are mostly white space with just 3 or 4 flowers, and then tons of totally blank pages. While it's said this is for you to practice, I wish the space had been utilized with more tips and inspiring ideas in other styles. For example, I like this way this artist does her organic shapes: the leaves, the flowing doodles. I like her watercolors and her borders. I found it odd to use whole pages for things like: sign your name as if you are a librarian, sign your name as if you are a rockstar, sign your name as if you were a teenager, a kindergartner, a teacher...there seemed to be lots of space fillers.
I did pick up some new tips and reminders of things I'd forgotten...I had, for example, not used graphite paper for ages and she mentioned using it for tracing and that is a great tip when transferring really detailed designs or sketching quickly. So, don't get me wrong, there are a few tips in here but it left me wanting more for sure...more variety, less silly cute.
I think this would be a fantastic book for a teen or pre-teen girl interested in drawing, however. The cartoon kids on skateboards and dogs dressed up in clothes might be a fun style for sure.
It was sadly lacking in much else but these--I REALLY liked the pages that were more on illustration and less on cartooning, as it's always good to expand one's style, but even though I like whimsy VERY much in my art, I think cats in tutus and such are fine for some but expanding the boundaries of style since she does so many other things well would have been so much greater for a wider audience. This could have been done if the book wasn't divided so greatly into all blank pages for practice.
The book is so gorgeous and quirky that it's an absolute delight to read. I truly hope for a 3rd book & Beyond!
