DEN'S DOODLES (Regular & Captionated) By Dennis Preston
Paperback: $12.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
On Facebook, I asked some of the owners of my other books (Critters, Creatures & Cuties and Preston Potpourri Volume 1) if they would be interested in a book that had some of my older doodles in... More > it... the answer was YES!!! One even said they'd color anything I put out. Most of the doodles are pretty sketchy, so if you are use to really bold solid lines to color within, these are going either give you a challenge OR loosen you up some in your coloring skills. Just my opinion... because of how much crosshatching there is in the drawings, I think fine tip pens and brush markers would work best on them. The line work will show through. Also... some of the 39 doodles even have captions. I don't know how funny you'll think they are... but they're there anyway. If you like my other books, I think you'll like this one too!< Less
