How to Draw Cool Stuff – 3 Series Review + Giveaway
My entire life I have thought it would be neat to have the ability to draw cute things on the pages and cards I create, but I am never able to get past a bloated looking stick figure. As a crafter, I am dismayed that I can not draw event the simplest of images, and made a resolution that this year I would work on changing that.
Timing is a constant theme on this blog, and this item is not exempt from a case of perfect timing. When I received an email with an opportunity to review the How to Draw Cool Stuff – 3 Book Series I could not believe the timing, because the night before I started looking for a books that would help my drawing skills.

I received each book in the How to Draw Cook Stuff – 3 Book Series by Catherine Holmes for review.
Since How to Draw Cool Stuff: A Drawing Guide for Teachers and Students is the one geared for teachers and students, I began to start with that one. The book covers basic drawing items, and explains how to draw and shad. I thought that this was a well laid out book, and at least showed me how to draw an eye.
The second book I delved into was How to Draw Cool Stuff: Holidays, Seasons and Events. This book spans a year and all the iconography for the that particular season or month. Many of these images would be fun to put on cards and then use a set of water-color pencils to shade them in.
The third book in the collection was How to Draw Cool Stuff: Shading, Textures and Optical Illusions, which was my favorite since I love optical illusions. Each step adds elements to that image which allows the artist to build on the creation and make a more detailed image.
Each of these books explains the drawing process and explains the steps needed to successfully draw almost any image. There are so many images and over 900 pages between the three books, you will find many images you want to recreate.
These would be a wonderful collection for tattoo artists, wanna be artists and everybody in between. I highly recommend and suggest you get your own copies of How to Draw Cool Stuff: A Drawing Guide for Teachers and Students, How to Draw Cool Stuff: Shading, Textures and Optical Illusions and How to Draw Cool Stuff: Holidays, Seasons and Events by Catherine Holmes.
