My review:

I am such a fan of Christopher Hart. His distinctive style is visually appealing, fun, and quirky.

This is book is so easy to follow and use that even non-artists (like myself) are able to duplicate the characters. I like the way each character is broken down into step by step directions on how to draw them.

There is also a lot of creativity encouraged in the pages of this book. Once the drawing of the characters is experienced, readers are prompted to work on developing expressions.

Some of the pictures are halfway drawn so that readers can complete the other half of the drawing. It is nice to have the additional guidance of what the drawing should look like.

This is a great book for anyone of any age that would like to develop drawing skills or learn how to draw. There is something for everyone. I can’t wait until Hart comes out with a new book!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
