Read full description of the books:
I highly recommend this! It's a GREAT guide to doodling. It's not about drawing things super realistically, it's more about just hanging loose with art and quickly sketching whatever you feel like.
It's by the guy who illustrates the Roald Dahl books, Quentin Blake. Each page prompts you to draw something, or finish a drawing the author started. One of my favorites was a page called "Emotional Rabbits." Depending on the look of the outline of a rabbit, you have to add in the facial expressions. For example, one of the outlines had a rabbit with his ears hanging down; he was looking down and he was hunched over. He clearly looked sad, so judging by his body language I added in an epic tearful face :)
This book made drawing the most simple and random things fun. One page is devoted to drawing buckets, another to candles, one for brooms, and so on. In the fine print below each page is a suggestion pile in case you can't think of anything to draw. The book allowed you to give character to inanimate objects (for example, I drew a bucket overloaded with caffeine).
Spontaneity! :) :) :) :)
I should bring this to Art Club b/c I never know what to draw...

Blake was educated at Chislehurst and Sidcup Grammar School. His English teacher, JH Walsh, influenced his ambition to become involved in literature. His first published drawing was for the satirical magazine Punch, at the age of 16. He read English Literature at Downing College, Cambridge (1953-6), received his postgraduate teaching diploma from the University of London, and later studied at the Chelsea School of Art. He gained another teaching diploma at the Institute of Education before working at the Royal College of Art.
Blake gained a reputation as a reliable and humorous illustrator of over 300 children's books. As well as illustrating the books of others, including Roald Dahl and Elizabeth Bowen, Blake has written numerous books of his own. As of 2006, he has participated in the writing and/or illustrating of 323 books (of which he wrote 35 himself, and 18 were by Dahl). He taught at the Royal College of Art for over twenty years, and was head of the Illustration department from 1978 to 1986. He recently illustrated David Walliams's debut book, The Boy in the Dress and his more recent book Mr Stink.
