About this book

A new fun format for Quarry's best-selling 20 Ways to Draw a Tree and 44 Other Nifty Things from Nature, this cute chunky volume features 500 inspirational illustrations in a perfect small size for drawing on the go! From trees, acorns, and eggs, to flowers, feathers, and dragonflies, Draw 500 Things from Nature is perfect for illustrators, cartoonists, doodlers, and anyone who loves to sketch. This is not a step-by-step technique book – rather, the trees and plants in Draw 500 Things from Nature are simplified, modernized and reduced to the most basic elements, offering simple abstract shapes and forms that meld to create the building blocks of any item (man-made or organic) that you want to draw. This all-in-one pocket-sized sketchbook lets you draw right on the pages making it easy to keep all of your most inspired creations at hand.
