I received a copy of The Art of Doodle Words through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
The Art of Doodle Words has to be one of the most fun art books I’ve read in quite some time. The artwork is cute and silly, but also had some interesting points and applications. All of the artwork was done by Sarah Alberto, a famous YouTube artist. In this book she shows you many of her techniques she uses, and ultimately she teaches how to combine words with doodles and sayings.
This guide book is broken down into two main parts. Part I is all about doodle letters, from simple letters to curly script. Part II is about doodle words, words using a theme and combined together by a doodle. At the end of the second segment is a sampling of Sarah Alberto’s works.
This was a really useful guide. It gave some ideas and instructions, but it didn’t hold your hand through the process. I consider that a good thing, because how else can you jump start your creativity? Mostly I just enjoyed seeing Sarah Alberto’s working process and the completed pieces.
