"Doodles Unleashed", stars Traci Bautista's distinct artwork, featuring graffiti-style handwriting juxtaposed against flourishes and floral motifs. Readers are given the lowdown on the best markers, pens and other media with which to doodle, followed by some quick and easy warm-up exercises. Step-by-step techniques introduce the reader to a variety of surfaces to doodle on, how to create unique alphabets and other basic shapes, and how to incorporate doodles into layered mixed-media artwork. Bonus "goodies" in the form of doodles to photocopy and play with, as well as links sprinkled throughout the book for additional ideas and projects online, ensure that the reader won't run out of inspiration, even after she reaches the last page.
Traci Bautista is creative director and owner of treiC Designs - a business endeavor that's entering its tenth year. She is the author of Collage Unleashed, and her artwork has been featured in over 15 mixed-media books and 40 craft magazines.
