A rolling pin, a robot, a pickle, a water tower, a hammock, a wasp, a safety pin, a kiss. Budding artists and experienced sketchers alike will find themselves invigorated by this collection of offbeat, clever, and endlessly absorbing drawing prompts. Some are deceptively simple (just try drawing a bicycle!), some are conceptually mind-bending (sketching the sound of girlish laughter?), and some are refreshingly basic (the only hard thing about drawing an egg is deciding how you want it to be cooked). Hip and helpful, 642 Things to Draw is the perfect inspirational sketchbook, sure to entertain and provoke the imagination of anyone ready to pick up a pencil.
In answer to the question, “What should I draw?” here is a book series jam-packed with ideas and space to execute them. The drawing challenges are pretty random and definitely varied. Some prompts are a full page, while others have a page divided into 2, 3 or 4 sections. On one page I saw the words marble, weathervane, lunchbox and a pound. What?! How do you draw a pound? A pound of what? Well now, that is part of the fun! See what sort of responses you get from any of the versions.
