I wanted to share some exciting news: I have not one, but two new books on the horizon.

The first, Drawing Cartoons Letter by Letter: Create Fun Characters from A to Z, is in the Shape By Shape series. You can pre-order it here for April 7, 2017!

The second is called Sketchits! Faces & Fashion: Draw, Doodle, Design, Create, and is perfect for all you fashionistas out there. Pre-order it here for May 7, 2017!

And don’t forget, for more updates, daily drawing challenges, tutorials, contests, and more, just head on over to my Facebook page, where I post daily.

More about Drawing Cartoons Letter by Letter: Create Fun Characters from A to Z:

This fun book starts with simple, basic letters and numbers. Step by step, Hart’s clever tutorials show how to turn an A into a clunky robot, a B into a buzzing bee, a C into a chomping dinosaur and so on. These inventive cartoon characters are a cinch to draw with Chris’s easy-to-follow instructions and a great way to engage children with letters, numbers and art. Every letter of the alphabet appears in both upper and lower case, and so do numbers nought to nine.

More about Sketchits! Faces & Fashion: Draw, Doodle, Design, Create:

This whimsical approach to drawing is like a blueprint for creativity! The fun starts with a coloured impression that would-be artists can use as a guide. This basic impression invites you to fill in all of the details to create your own unique characters. Focusing on faces and fashion, this edition of Sketchits! provides more than 100 impressions. Add facial features, hair, patterned clothing and accessories. With drawing tips and techniques included, it’s a great activity book for kids and adults alike.

Thanks for all your support!
