A fun new art how-to book from Akiko Masudo and Quarto Publishing Group.
The drawings and inspiration pages are really cute and basic and the tutorial step-by-step illustrations are so easy anyone can do them.

I liked the fact that the author/illustrator showed her own off the cuff versions of cat doodles which are spontaneous and energetic and not polished.  When I was reading this book, I was thinking 'hey, I can do that'!

It's a very short book (64 pages, according to Amazon), and every page is full of different layouts with, of course, cats in all shapes and sizes and colors.  There are pages of cats in frames, like a gallery, cats in trees, houses and comic layout cats and many others.  There are pages to finish yourself and pages of tutorials.

The book is very fun and would appeal to younger artists as well as adults who need some inspiration to get through those 'meetings which really should've been an email' :)

Three and a half stars

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher
