Description

Let your inner artist strut with this inspirational sketchbook that teaches you to draw anything and everything fashionable!

Strut your stuff with 20 Ways to Draw A Shoe and 44 Other Sneakers, Slippers, Stilettos, and Slingbacks. Beautifully illustrated, this inspirational sketchbook will help you learn how to draw anything on your feet. From sandals and pumps to loafers and oxfords, 20 Ways to Draw a Shoe is perfect for illustrators, doodlers, and anyone who loves to sketch.

This is not a step-by-step technique book--rather, the toe-tapping objects in this volume-- ballet flats, ankle boots, roller skates, platforms and much, much more --are simplified, modernized, and reduced to the most basic elements, showing you how simple abstract shapes and forms create the building blocks of any item that you want to draw. Presented in Julia Kuo's creative style, each of the 20 interpretations provides a different, interesting approach to drawing a single item, providing loads of inspiration for your own drawing.

Get out your favorite drawing tool, and remember, there are not just 20 Ways to Draw a Shoe!

In this volume: sandals, pumps, loafers, oxfords, slippers, stilettos, sneakers, ballet flats, platforms, roller skates, booties and more
