“50 Ways to Draw Your Beautiful, Ordinary Life” is a wonderful how to draw book put out by Flow, a Dutch company whose publications are tailor-made for paper lovers.
This book touts itself as “practical lessons in pencil and paper”, but that doesn’t describe the rich details that await aspiring artists. Instead of a run-of-the-mill how-to guide, this book is a gorgeous mix of drawing lessons, tips for other mediums, space to practice and more. Within every page of beautiful illustrations, you’ll also find its wonderfully interactive inserts like fold out houses, mini drawing books, various sheets of different papers, and paper dolls as well as highlights of inspiring graphic artists.
