  • 6Lets get startedWelcome, artists!

    In this book, Im going to show you the easiest way to draw.

    By starting with just a circle (or a square or triangle) and

    adding to it bit by bit, you will be able to draw all

    kinds of cute animals and crazy cartoon characters.

    All you need to start is a pencil and some paper. You can use

    a drawing pad or sketchbook or just some scrap paper.

    Its easy to make mistakes when youre drawing.

    To get rid of any errors, just rub them out with an eraser.

  • If you need a little help drawing your circles, squares,

    and triangles, there are templates in the back of the book.

    Just cut them out with scissors (ask Mom or Dad to help)

    and trace around the shapes with your pencil.

    To add some color to your finished drawing, you can use crayons,

    markers, or colored pencils, like I did for this book. Remember that the

    more you practice drawing, the easier it will get. So grab a

    pencil and some paper and start creating!

    Happy Drawing!Chris Hart
