642 Things to Draw

My friends know me well: this was a book I received for my birthday.


Along with a set of beautiful pencils, I can’t wait to get my hands into drawing in this book. It is full of ideas of things to draw, and then space on the page to draw whatever that is – whether it’s a toothbrush or an igloo, everything seems to be in there.

It reminds me of a book I had as a kid which was primarily the same – it had suggestions of what to draw on the page, although I recall it being like Mr. Squiggle – there were starter lines on the page you had to include in the drawing. I loved that book and I’m hoping my Mum still has it around somewhere so I can compare. I’m sure the drawings in it are terrible as I recall having it when I was no more than 7 or 8 years old, but it would be a good trip down memory lane.
