I received a copy of Doodled Cats through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Doodled Cats is a fun art book by Gemma Correl. The book delivers exactly what it promises; doodled cats. It includes everything from funny comics by the author to fun tutorials, guides, and prompts. I enjoyed the comics by the artist so much that I rather wish there were a few more of those, to be honest.

This is a fun and quick guide, but it includes many unique ways of getting a person to think different about doodles. From half-finished works the reader is supposed to finish, to silly prompts and ideas. They made the whole thing fun, while still being informative. I probably don’t need to point out how difficult that would be to balance out.

I think for me, my favorite chapter would have to be the third chapter, appropriately titled ‘it’s a cat world.’ It has cats in funny clothing, anthropomorphized cats, cats & dogs together, and so much more. It had me giggling at more than one point, which I suspect was the author’s goal.

If you’re looking for an art book that’ll help you relax and let yourself doodle, then this is the perfect book for you. Especially if you love cats, but that was probably obvious, wasn’t it?




About Liz (AKA Cat)

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try any artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. My other major passion is reading. My TBR pile is larger than I'll ever be able to read, and yet I can't resist adding to it on a nearly daily basis. I love to read science fiction & fantasy, graphic novels, and pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I have a couple of blogs, as you can see. One is primarily my photography, while the other are my book reviews. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
