My Year in Small Drawings is a charmingly original visual diary which encourages you to create and collect the details all around you every day. Exploring the extraordinary in the ordinary, this meaningful artifact builds up dozens of dinky drawings for a uniquely personal record.
Author Matilda Tristram invites doodlers and designers alike to experience the irresistible immediacy of drawing small. Tangles of cables, window frames, tree buds, all just some of the objects she suggests we can learn to see in a new way, exploring their simple (and sometimes surprising beauty) by drawing them.
Expert insights on how to simplify what we see; which pens and pencils to use; colour; and using perspective are mixed with astute observations to form a creative guide to cherish.
