For novices, experts, and anyone trying to free themselves from the constrains of perfectionism, Draw Like a Child is a whimsical guide to playing like an artist
Draw Like a Child is a guided sketchbook for anyone seeking a fresh approach to drawing. Both a guide to making entirely original illustrations and a place where artists—amateurs and experienced ones alike—can honestly express themselves, this book emboldens you to be brave enough to draw whatever you want and innocent enough to make mistakes. Ignore the rules of what makes art “Art” and toss aside any inhibitions you have in order to draw as freely as possible. Broken down into seven chapters, each focuses on a different drawing method and offers exercises designed to help you loosen up and make works of art that feel like you. Filled with examples of Haleigh Mun’s vibrant art, Draw Like a Child will lead you on a journey to discover your true artistic self.
About the author
Haleigh Mun is a Korean illustrator living in New York City. As a child, she loved talking to her mom all day long. She grew up and realized that she can communicate through drawings, immediately falling for the charms of a white sheet of paper and colored pencils. Her dream is to chatter as much as possible in a small world created by her heart and hands. See more of her work at haleighmun.com and @haleighmun.
