Book Review: Drawing Cute with Katie Cook

The description of this book made me laugh – Fun fact – a lot of animals are shaped like potatoes. Another fun fact – potatoes are easy to draw. Another another fun fact – if you can draw a potato, you can draw animals.

I’m pretty sure I can draw a potato but I would have been less sure to tell you I could draw an animal.  However, Katie’s book includes 200+ lessons for drawing super adorable stuff.  And while I didn’t try out drawing anything while checking this book out, I did find some things I might like to try eventually. Since basically everything in this book is a super, super adorable and oh-so-cute cartoon version of cute animals. And other things. Like vegetables. Because vegetables are totally cute, right?

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
