BOOKLIST July 1 2021

Author and artist Li (How to Draw Kawaii Animals in Simple Steps, 2020) returns with another inthe How to Draw . . . in Simple Steps series. More than 100 kawaii (cute) drawings are providedin eight steps each, allowing the reader to sketch along with the book and practice until they’vemastered the item, person, or creature of their choice. The drawings fall into a few categories:animals, everyday objects, vehicles, food, and chibis (cute, stylized, miniature characters).Though instructions are not written out in words, the familiar technique readers will learn here isto identify the basic shapes that make up the item one wants to draw, start with a blocky sketchusing those shapes, and refine the sketch gradually. As usual, the only instruction for the finalstep of coloring in is the example, so readers may wish to look to other sources to learn aboutshading, color choice, and other related aspects. Fun and cute, this will appeal to those wishing to learn how to draw in a kawaii style.
