When we drew as children, we never worried about making mistakes?we took risks and trusted ourselves, and had fun in the process. But as we become adults, anxiety steps in: ?Am I doing this right?? ?What is expected of me?? ?This is wrong!? And from drawing, we can extrapolate into the rest of our lives. The fear of making a mistake hinders us from being as creative as we could be.
Deborah Putnoi's interactive sketchbook helps us reconnect to that open, nonjudgmental state, which she calls the ?drawing mind.? Her bold, lively drawings and encouraging instructions lead you on a process of self-discovery, first reclaiming the freedom to express yourself through drawing and then learning how to take that freedom into the activities of your daily life.
