"For Coloring Book Graduates!"
What comes to mind when you think of a circle? Depending on its size, it could be a planet, a manhole cover, an orange, a leopard's spot. What if there are lots of circles on a page? Depending on how they're placed, they might suggest a galaxy of stars or a bunch of grapes, a flea circus, or a polkadotted dress. It all depends on who is doing the looking. A follow-up to 100 Things to Doodle With a Triangle, this is the second in a series of draw-in books based on geometric shapes.
100 Things to Draw With a Circle is a doodling book that loosens the imagination, and inspires creative thought. Circles and other basic geometric shapes are at the core of art, they're the structures where form and drawing begin.
In this book, illustrator Sarah Walsh provides you with circles that appear as prompts on every page: one or many, large and small, colorful or not, peeking from the bottom or tumbling from the top -- you fill in the rest. If one triangle suggests a game of checkers and another a snowman, one a drop of rain in a puddle, or another a patch of dandelions, a circle is meaningless until you decide what it wants to be. The simplest of shapes brings you back to the basics and lets you create anything you can see in your imagination. Abstract or realistic, minimal or over-the-top, there are no wrong choices in this book -- and you don't have to be a master at drawing. Pick up your pencil, see what the shapes suggest and where your imagination leads you.
