    This wasn t a bad read by any stretch, but I m confused as to its audience Going from basic techniques to how to get your work seen in such a small number of pages was a but surprising I was interested in the artist herself, especially that she draws adult colouring books.

    If you are someone knowing that aesthetics is a part of your personality and you KNOW you are seeing things a bit differently than the others and you want to take a step in evolving your inner artist and to boost your range in the pop culture sphere, this is a book for you It can give you a hint about basic techniques and tips you need for making an art, but mostly and most importantly it invites you in SEEING things and encourages you to be your creative self, because being yourself is the only [...]

    Lately I ve been coloring and really loving it It s making me want to draw and paint and do all sorts of things I ve really no idea how to do This book tells me, but it also tells me that it s most important that I have fun There are exercises, explanation of techniques, and instructions on using many different art products This book was really awesome Provided by publisher

    Lots of nice photos and fun artwork adorn the pages of this how to book I think that people who are artistically inclined or have some sort of background in art will enjoy this book and find it inspiring I don t think it gives enough information for beginners though I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
