How many of us find shapes in the world around us? Faces in mountains and fantastical creatures in clouds are there, if you look with the eye of a child. Drawing and Painting Imaginary Animals by Carla Sonheim appeals to the inner child. The author takes her inner child to the streets and finds inspiration for magical creatures from a variety of different sources such as a hand of ginger or a segment of cracked pavement.
This book serves as inspiration to never leave home without your sketchbook or your camera. Busy as we all are, there are moments of inspiration to be snatched from the everyday.
I find books published by Quarry Books to be slightly quirky, highly imaginative and real mind openers. They’re great for those looking for a way to enjoy their creativity as well as the artist looking to expand their imagination. They would appeal to everyone who keeps a journal.
This series of books are worth looking through. Like in the earlier blog post “The Art of Urban Sketching” this little tome offers an element of freedom for the inner child.
