The creativity never stops with IlLISTration!
IlLISTration is a remarkable and unique book featuring ludicrous lists to help artists, doodlers, and sketchers with daily inspiration! Inside, you'll find complete illustrated lists, partial lists, and blank lists to help guide you through a world full of illustration ideas and motivation.
Each list has a distinct theme or fantastical topic. What world would you create using Modes of Miniature Transportation? Could you doodle out dozens of Drinks for Dragons? And how would you create your Recipes for Disaster? These themes include lines for twelve descriptive names, and plenty of space for your accompanying illustrations.
