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?
