DRAW SOME AWESOME
Softcover, 2021
230 x 250mm (portrait), 64 pages
 

"I don't want to teach you how to draw like me, I want to teach you how to draw like YOU!"

Donovan Bixley’s magical new book shares the secrets that have made him arguably

New Zealand’s best illustrator. Perfect for kids of all ages.

"Drawing is just dreaming with a pencil in your hand."

Donovan brings his unique style to teaching kids (and grown-ups!) to draw.

In a book that spans levels of skill, Donovan takes his readers through warm-up exercises,

mark making, sketchbooks, imagination exercises, inspirational shapes, drawing animals,

faces, character creation, detail, copying, perspective, thumbnails, shading, shadows,

composition, making an illustration, and even drawing a unicorn.

Of course he does it with humour as well as skill.
