This book is inspiring my five year old daughter to draw!

The step-by-step approach in this book is clearly illustrated, allowing my daughter to create some amazing artwork from animals to castles to dinosaurs. It is enchanting to watch your children learn how easy it is to flip to an exercise and choose circles, squares, triangles as a base for their artwork. Drawing along side her is also a lot of fun too. The book does a great job of providing just the right mix of easy and moderately complex projects to inspire young children to draw. As an educator of 15+ years with four children of my own, I highly recommend this book to any parent as a gift to inspire the budding artist.

I am learning to do illustrations for game programming and this book has been amazing in terms of learning the basics of drawing...simple and easy to understand - combining basic shapes and then modifying to create characters...has given me the basics to be able to draw which prior didn't think I had the skill.

Worth the purchase!

It keeps my kids occupied and away from the computer for a while that's a very hard thing to do and this works great, very happy with it.

Great for those of us who can't draw! Dec 26 2013
By PB Max - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound
We got this for the boys for Xmas, but honestly, I am enjoying it for myself also. I have never been good at drawing, but this is easy to follow and very predictable. Our boys are young now, but they are enjoying trying to emulate the pictures. This will easily grow with them and they will only continue to perfect it.

Cartoon Capers Rock !!! Oct. 13 2013
By Mary Cardwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
I was teaching a cartooning class at my school and wanted some new material. I found this book at the Art Museum. The children loved it sooo much I ordered a second copy for the classroom. It is almost as worn as the first. I am going back for number three. Excellent.

Great learn to draw starter Dec 18 2013
By Jackie Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
I bought this for my 5 year old son who loves to draw stick people. The figures are mostly simple shapes, but do incorporate other drawing to finish the figure. All in all a good book of good quality. Seems like it will hold up to years of abuse.

Neat Book Feb. 23 2014

Book is cool, fun and easy for kids to follow. Lots of pictures to choose from. It's nice that the drawings consist of shapes.
Really cute and fun book Dec 9 2013
By Nicci - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
This one combines 3 of his cartooning books : Draw a Circle Draw anything, Draw a Square Draw Anything and Draw a Triangle Draw Anything.
I have seen this book many times at Michael's and just thought I was cool.
I was right. Though it is meant for children ages 4 and up, artists of all ages and levels could enjoy this book.
Fun and Simple, this book gets one inspired.
Though I wish the templates we made out of something stronger, so that they would last longer, it was a good idea to put them in the book.
All in all this is a great book and will make a great gift for an artist you know.
