Draw Every Little Thing: Learn To Draw More Than 100 Items
Drawing can be challenging. To the untrained eye, it can sometimes seem as though it's an innate, rather than a learned skill. Thankfully, just like most other things, it can be taught, and this book is here to do just that. With lots of drawing tips and tricks from author and illustrator Flora Waycott, you too can start drawing up a storm with advice and step-by-step guides for how to depict common everyday items. Including a brief introduction to various drawing mediums, from graphite to ink, colored pencils and gouache, this guide encourages you to jump right in and start practicing with items you might find around your home, practicing your new skills and developing your own personal style. Appropriate for artists of all skill levels, Draw Every Little Thing can help you improve your drawing ability no matter how talented you are initially.

Portland's most colorful, authentic, and empowering publishing house and distributor, Microcosm Publishing equips readers to make positive changes in their lives and in the world around them. Microcosm emphasizes skill-building, showing hidden histories, and fostering creativity through challenging conventional publishing wisdom with books and zines about DIY skills, food, bicycling, gender, self-care, and social justice.Microcosm has lived in milk crates, in closets, in a mud room, in a windowless basement, in a church, and under a desk at a major credit card company. We've brought our brightly colored books to infoshops, zine fests, media summits, bicycle conferences, parks, street corners, house shows, dirty bars, allnight coffeeshops, art museums, and every corner of the mainstream where we can clear away a little space to set up shop. We set out to save ourselves from not caring, but out there in the margins we've found communities worth always doing it better for. Now we have contracts instead of handshakes, a warehouse instead of a fanny pack full of zines. We have a staff, we have relationships in the industry that send our books to places we wouldn't have dreamed we could walk into ourselves. We're not as drunk or dirty as we used to be. But still, at heart, we've got this milk crate strapped to the back of a bike and we're riding wildly across town to hand you the book that might just be the one that saves your life!
