Artists and doodlers will love this step-by-step method of drawing 60 different animals using simple shapes, such as rectangles, triangles and semicircles. Graphic designer and illustrator Kim (“Draw 62” series; You Can Be Just Happy Today) makes the process easy with clear directions for creating these cute critters. Kim masterfully simplifies heads, torsos, and legs of farm animals, woodland and winged creatures, and much more. While each of the book’s drawings has cartoonish features, they still capture the animals’ essence. Simple poses on the left are followed by more complex ones on the right. There are also QR codes that link to videos of the author demonstrating her craft.
VERDICT Fun and easy-to-follow, this book of techniques can be enjoyed by children, teens, and adults.
