Explore almost every way imaginable to draw dolphins, trains, flowers, food, and more with 20 Ways to Draw Everything.
Designed to offer artists, designers, and doodlers fun illustration inspiration, each spread of this portable sketchbook features 20 art examples—simplified, modernized, and reduced to the most basic elements—showing you how simple abstract shapes and forms create the building blocks of any item that you want to draw. Each of the 20 interpretations provides a different, interesting approach to drawing a single item, providing loads of inspiration for your own drawing.
Either on the opposite page or right alongside the example drawings, you'll be prompted to draw 20 of each thing, from trees and flowers to wild shapes and sea creatures and everything in between. This is not a step-by-step technique book, but rather an opportunity for you to draw your own versions of these amazing doodles side-by-side the inspiration pieces.
Organized into the sections of “Get Up and Go,” “Under the Sea,” and “Oodles of Doodles,” enjoy hours of creative fun drawing your versions of iconic subjects, such as:
- Zigzags, hearts, spirals, and teardrops
- Crabs, mermaids, sharks, and walruses
- Bikes, trains, planes, and hot air balloons
- And so much more

Trina Dalziel has worked as a freelance illustrator for over seventeen years. Originally from the North of Scotland, she grew up on a tomato farm before living in the Netherlands, Copenhagen, Helsinki, and Paris. She earned a degree in illustration, and at the post-graduate level studied twentieth-century art and design history, which has all fed into her love of art, design, nature, animals, Scandinavia and European cities. She lives in London where she greatly appreciates the access to exhibitions, galleries, and museums which fuel her inspiration and research.
James Gulliver Hancock feels sick when he’s not drawing. He panics that he may not be able to draw everything in the world… at least once. His obsession with re-imagining his world has seen him work for major print, TV, and music publishing releases, including Coca-Cola, Ford Motors, Herman Miller, Businessweek Magazine, The New York Times, and Simon&Schuster. He has participated in projects in the USA, the UK, Indonesia, Austria, Germany, France, and Australia, taking his whimsical perception around the world. Currently he works out of two studios: one in The Pencil Factory in Brooklyn, New York, and from his homeland studio by the beach in Sydney, Australia.
