The first book, Doodle Challenge, is designed to get that creativity flowing with step-by-step instructions on how to draw an assortment of objects, colouring techniques and spaces to test colour palettes. There's plenty of actual colouring designs interspersed with the tutorials, so if one day you don't feel like drawing you can always flip through and find a colouring page.
The second book, Draw it Now, contains 365 drawing challenges, formatted as a blank box with a prompt in the caption. This book is naturally a lot less detailed and leaves you to decide how you will approach each idea. Here's a look into both books with a little more detail on what's inside, plus some of my work.
Draw It Now
At £5.99 each these books make an affordable and interesting partner to colouring books, serving as another outlet for mindfulness and winding down at the end of the day. The only qualm I have with the books is physical- the binding. It's impossible to get them to open flat (the reason some of my photos look warped) and is difficult to hold open whilst you're drawing, so this is the only thing I'd change for further editions.
You can find the books in WH Smith, most supermarkets and all good retailers, or buy online here:
