Surround yourself with cuteness by learning to draw 100 tiny items in this adorable little lay-flat sketchbook. In her first book, YouTube vlogger Sarah Alberto demonstrates how to create faces, plants, food, animals, and various everyday objects in just six steps or less, with space provided for practice so you can doodle side by side with her examples. Inspired by the popular Japanese character style (kawaii means “cute”), all of the subjects in this sketchbook are rendered in ballpoint pen, a ubiquitous office supply item that doesn’t bleed through the page and allows you to create small details and sharp lines. The simplicity and scale of Alberto’s approach is ideal for beginners or those who want to expand their drawing vocabulary in an accessible and bite-size way. It’s is also a terrific guide and practice book for legions of bullet journalers who are looking for quick and easy ways to add illustrations to their planners.
