Cute Food: Step-by-Step
Draw cute, with this book that introduces budding artists to basic techniques for creating adorable kawaii food! Kawaii is a Japanese word that actually means “cute,” and these fun projects, outlined with step-by-step instructions and delightful illustrations, will give children the confidence and skillset to create their own pictures. One side of the spread provides the illustration and the how-tos; the other side has space for you to create your personal variation on the design. From hot dogs and watermelon to cupcakes and pretzels, if this food were real it would be too cute to eat! Draw a takeout container of kawaii ramen, complete with chopsticks; the container has a smiley face and is licking its tongue. Or create a selection of drinks in a glass using different fruits and all with different expressions. You can also try your hand at favorites like pizza, pancakes, peas in a pod, sushi, tacos, ice cream, and more!
