Everyone suffers from a little boredom sometimes; The Little Book of Sketching is the remedy to these dull moments! This guide will have you flipping the day's doldrums into artistic inspiration!

If you've ever been held captive in a long meeting, sat for hours in a doctor's waiting room, or been stranded at the airport, there is help to be found! And you'll find it in The Little Book of Sketching.

A journey that both inspires and entertains, The Little Book of Sketching shows you how to pass the time through life's daily events using nothing more than a pencil, a sketchpad, and your imagination. Filled with quirky, witty sketches and plenty of fun, aspiring sketchers will discover how to turn life's boring events into inspired artistic moments.

Simple drawing ideas and minimal tools make off-the-cuff sketching accessible to anyone, anywhere.
