Product description: • Focuses on a universal love—the doodle. The latest craze—zentangles—supports the artist’s love for simple, graphic, hand-drawn lines. • Traci Bautista has become known for pioneering this look of graffiti style lettering juxtaposed with flourishes and flowers. In Doodles Unleashed, Traci Bautista’s distinct artwork, featuring graffiti-style handwriting juxtaposed against flourishes and floral motifs, is made the star. Readers will be given the lowdown on the best markers, pens and other media with which to doodle, followed by some quick and easy warm-up exercises. Step-by-step techniques will introduce the reader to a variety of surfaces to doodle on, how to create unique alphabets and other basic shapes, and how to incorporate doodles into layered mixed-media artwork. Bonus “goodies” in the form of doodles to photocopy and play with, as well as links sprinkled throughout the book for additional ideas and projects online, ensure that the reader won’t run out of inspiration, even after she reaches the last page.
