Find Your Happy - in this chunky little Journal

5 Stars for 
instant HAPPY journal 
by Karen Salmansohn

I Love this cute little Journal!  For myself, and especially as a gift for friends.  It is small and chunky and full of happy colors - not only on the outside but all throughout the book.  The author did a fantastic job with her unique questions and great layout.  I think this Christmas I will give out these to my sisters and good friends with a good set of pens.:)

One reason I like it so much is that each page has color on it.  Not a boring blank journal but a fun enticing place to rest your mind and spill a little of it through your pen.  Also each page has a cute little quote/saying that gets you started.  For example, one page says "Here's Some Confetti - Celebrate all the little things that are going right".

Don't miss this cute little chunk of fun in about a 5" x 6" size!  Don't we all need a little bit more happy in this crazy busy world of ours?  Sometimes it really does take a minute to stop and think in order to realize that life is good - I can be happy!

FreeHand Figure Drawing for Illustrators


5 Stars - 
As you can probably tell - I am on a doodle/drawing kick.  Mostly I am trying to learn simple quick little ways to cutsie up what I'm taking notes on.  But I had to just try this new book.  It takes you one step farther than the typical stick figure.  If you've taken a drawing class you have bought a simple wooden man that you can pose - well this book takes that concept to the top.  I love the amazing action poses.  Author David Ross is really giving those of us who want to draw a figure moving - the best help there is.  

If you love to draw people and want to learn how to take it to a fun new level - get this book.  You can draw people in action poses - like sports - or super heroes flying and fighting - things you thought only the pros can do.  Well think again.  A great book to gift the aspiring artist in your life!

My favorite chapter is on drawing hands and feet.  The tips and tricks they present are excellent.  My hands and feet drawings have completely gone to a new level! 

My only warning is that if you are purchasing this book for a younger artist be aware that in chapter 9 when you study muscles there are 2 or 3 pages that include a sketched drawing of a naked woman.  I am cutting out those pages so everyone in my house can benefit from this fantastic drawing book.   
I was given this book free in exchange for an honest review.
