    DescriptionThis inspiring sketchbook is part of the new 20 Ways series from Quarry Books, designed to offer artists, designers, and doodlers a fun and sophisticated collection of illustration fun. Each spread features 20 inspiring illustrated examples of a single animal, such as a cat, giraffe, seal, elephant, or whale--with blank space for you to draw your take on "20 Ways to Draw a Cat." This is not a step-by-step technique book--rather, the stylized animals are simplified, modernized, and reduced to the most basic elements, showing you how simple abstract shapes and forms meld to create the building blocks of any item that you want to draw. Each of the 20 interpretations provides a different, interesting approach to drawing a single item, providing loads of inspiration for your own drawing. Presented in the author's uniquely creative style, this engaging and motivational practice book provides a new take on the world of sketching, doodling, and designing.

    Review quote
    "This series takes a novel, minimalist approach to art instruction. Each "20 Ways" title provides 45 spreads that are each filled with 20 small drawings on a given theme. REaders will find no step-by-step exercises here; however, each spread offers a variety of styles and techniques. Drawings range from the realistic to the cartoonish to the decorative, with a few rendered in color. The variety of drawing types is intended to inspire readers to experiment on their own. ASpiring artists can either copy drawings directly from the book or create their own variations on a theme. The latest two volumes in the series focus on nature and animals. 20 Ways To Draw a Tree presents many sophisticated, modern drawings of plants and flowers, executed with a surprising array of materials. Despite the title, 20 Ways To Draw a Cat includes all sorts of animals, such as hedgehogs, buffalo, fish, and zebras. VERDICT While Tree will appeal to teens or adult readers, Cat is most appropriate for younger audiences." "- Library Journal"
