101 Super Cute Cat Things to Draw: Draw, doodle, and color a plethora of purrfectly pawsome felines and quirky cat mash-ups

101 Super Cute Cat Things to Draw is an adorable beginner drawing guide with tutorials by Lulu Mayo. Released 14th June 2022 by Quarto on their Walter Foster imprint, it's 128 pages and available in paperback format. 

This is a how-to book. The sections and tutorials are grouped thematically and start with the very basic tools & supplies, and tips for getting started. Further chapters build on the skills from the earlier parts and include using color, and step-by-step tutorials.

The author has a very friendly and encouraging style of writing and the drawing lessons are not intimidating or difficult in any way. She also includes some tips and tricks to get the shy artist in motion.

The book seems to be slanted to a mostly younger audience, but frankly I see kawaii scientist cats with lab coats and syringes and microscopes in the margins of my "meeting notes".  

Well worth a look, especially if you have a young artist (or wannabe) on your hands. It would also make a lovely gift, perhaps bundled with some art supplies. Highly recommended for folks who regularly interact with small children as well to learn to draw something which will delight and impress the smalls.

Four and a half stars

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