Anyone can learn to draw adorable unicorns and other cute creatures using simple shapes in 5 easy steps.

This book will show readers how to draw quirky, kawaii (super cute) animals in a wonderfully easy and inspiring way. Step by step, illustrator Lulu Mayo will explain how to draw various creatures by using simple shapes, such as circles, ovals, rectangles, and triangles, and how to personalize them by adding your own, adorable details.

The book contains 30 of these doodling exercises, featuring critters such as rabbits, owls, foxes, sloths, llamas—and especially unicorns! Its easiness, simplicity, and quirkiness will resonate with animal lovers, artists, and doodle enthusiasts of all skill levels and ages. Absorbing and fun, it will ignite a doodler’s curiosity and inspire them to experiment creatively.

How to Draw a Unicorn and Other Cute Animals will be the first in Lulu Mayo’s Drawing with Simple Shapes series, to be followed by Drawing Marine Life with Simple Shapes in 5 Steps and Drawing Nature with Simple Shapes in 5 Steps.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

As a children’s book author and illustrator for the last thirty years, (The Adventures of Iggy Squiggles-my own series, and others), I love seeing the amazing talent of other illustrators/artists.

This book written and illustrated by Lulu Mayo will make a great addition to my resource shelf.  It’s written for a younger crowd but its resourcefulness would appeal to adults looking for simplistic, yet gorgeous illustration styles.

Easy to follow, excellent accompanying illustrations demonstrating techniques and delightful style, a very original form of illustrations that say it all. I can see the appeal of adding illustrations demonstrated in this book to any picture book or easy reader read by children between the ages of three and twelve, depending of course, on the level of reading. I think graphic novels written and using the illustration style demonstrated in this book would also appeal to many adults. I’m looking forward to seeing more work from Lulu Mayo.
