 This month we celebrated the release of Craft-a-Doodle by Jenny Doh, a new book featuring the work of 18 talented artists who share inventive prompts and how-to exercises to jump-start and expand your love of playful drawing.

Essentially, you walk out onto the diving board of Craft-a-Doodle, you happily wiggle your toes to the edge, and then you leap, carefree, into a pool of creative inspiration designed for the doodler inside all of us. Really, it’s that fun.

No matter how minutely detailed or expressively free form your doodling tends to be, you’ll find springboards galore among the book’s 75 exercises. From artful creations to clever uses of shape, pattern, color, line, and texture, Craft-a-Doodle has got you covered.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win. My doodle style is a very exploratory venture attempting to reawaken some muscle/eye/brain memory from high school (many moons ago) because I would love to recapture the joy I once experienced with paper and pen in hand.

    Oddly enough one of my daughter’s nicknames is Doodle ;-) She’s four, so I mostly like to help her with her drawing. She busted out a bird and some flowers the other day that I was pretty impressed with for a little one :-)
