Draw 62 Animals

 Draw 62 Animals and Make Them Cute is a tutorial doodle-art/drawing guide by Heegyun Kim. Released 26th March 2019 by Quarto on their Quarry imprint, it's 128 pages and available in paperback format.

I'm a huge fan of drawing tutorial books and collect them like crazy despite not being (in my own estimation) gifted artistically.  This makes me especially appreciative of art books and techniques suited to beginning artists.This little book is exactly as described. There are step by step tutorials for 62 different animals with different variations and poses for each one. There is a 'you try it' balloon on each page for reader drawings.

This would make a great gift for would-be artists of all ages. The included animal tutorials are varied and eclectic with appearances from alpacas (see cover) to pufferfish and capybaras. There is no additional introductory technique or materials instruction; the book just includes the 62 animals. There is a complete table of contents, so locating individual animals shouldn't be problematic. The tutorials are slanted toward line drawings, though colored pens, crayons, and watercolors could certainly be used to enhance the line drawings.

Cute book, accessible for everyone.

Five stars.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
