Dare to Sketch is a fun and casual book about drawing with your sketchbook, bringing it around, looking for interesting subjects to draw.
The book is written by Felix Scheinberger, who’s an illustrator and designer from Germany.
This book is actually translated from the German edition Mut Zum Skizzenbuch that was published in 2009. I had bought the German edition because I loved the loose and colourful sketches of Felix Scheinberger. His drawings are lovely and have a child-like feel to them.
So now that the book is in English, I can finally understand the content.
This book explores the fun of keeping a sketchbook and drawing. There are tips on what you can draw, tools and drawing supplies that you can use and basic techniques on making your sketch look more lively and dimensional. All the tips are practical and easy to adopt in practice.
The tone used throughout is encouraging and motivating. It’s certainly a book that I can refer to repeatedly in the future, especially for the beautiful artworks.
Highly recommended to anyone who loves to draw.
