A unique mix-and-match book that generates thousands of ideas for tackling a blank sketchbook page

Designed to kickstart creativity for artists and hobbyists, the pages of this book are divided into three separate sections that can be flipped, mixed, and matched to generate more than 100,000 unique sketchbook prompts! Jennifer Orkin Lewis, author of Draw Every Day, Draw Every Way and 100 Days of Drawing, has gained a dedicated following on Instagram by posting her daily sketches. The Sketchbook Idea Generator begins with an introductory section, in which Jennifer provides examples of her work as well as insight into her process of interpreting a prompt. The rest of the book consists of pages that are sliced into three mix-and-match sections that represent the three essential elements of a good drawing prompt: medium, color, and subject. With those basic decisions made, you can get right down to it!
