Book Review: Doodletopia: Cartoons

Doodletopia: Cartoons by Christopher Hart
Draw, Design, and Color Your Own Super-Fun Cartoon Creations

This is a neat book for learning to draw cartoons! The book is filled with drawing exercises and step-by-step tutorials that are fun and easy to learn. Unlike some drawing how-to books, this one has you draw right in the pages of the book so you don't have to have your own paper or sketchbook at hand to enjoy it! Plus, the book is laced with humor throughout which makes it even more enjoyable! I've done the first two step-by-step drawings and both proved to be quite simple to draw! Everything is explained quite clearly so it's easy to understand and follow along. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys drawing or wishes to better their skills!

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

Review: The Time Chamber

The Time Chamber
A magical story and coloring book
by Daria Song

When a tiny fairy who lives inside a cuckoo clock
decides to explore the world outside, she discovers a
human realm where everything is immense and magical.

Filled with fantastical, intricate pen-and-ink illustrations by artist
Daria Song, The Time Chamber presents a Korean pop art-inspired 
vision of our world made new---and ready for coloring.

I've wanted an adult coloring book for some time now so I was excited when 
I saw that Blogging for Books had one available for review! 
This is a gorgeous book with lots of intricate and lovely pictures ready to be colored.
The cover of the book is also gorgeous and the pages are made of a very sturdy, good quality paper.
I already colored one of the pages, and look forward to coloring the rest! A very lovely book indeed! I recommend it to anyone who enjoys coloring, young or old! (though it's definitely more geared toward women than men!)
