Draw Yourself Happy is a fun book which promotes mindful drawing by Alex Beeching.
This is an activity book where each page spread is dedicated to drawing an illustration, doodling, colouring in or embellishing.
Alex says “This book isn’t really a book at all. It’s a toy box, a toolbox and a box of delights all rolled into one. You don’t have to do the exercises in order – dip in and out or go off-piste – but all the while keep this question uppermost in your mind: what makes you happy?”
Some of the drawing exercises include:
- Drawing what’s on your desk
- Add a necklace and earrings to a lady
- Go for a walk in the park and draw what you see
- Copy a ship in a bottle
- Using an outline and example draw a toucan
- Create your own custom design on a matchbox
The book is packed with lots of fun and quirky illustrations to start you off and inspire you.
Draw Yourself Happy is a lovely book which would make an ideal present for an inspiring or creative person in your life.
Available in paperback.
