When I found out that I won a contest where I could pick out five books from Quarto Knows, Kawaii Doodle Class was my easiest choice because I had already put it on my daughter’s Amazon wishlist. According to the Urban Dictionary, “kawaii” is an adjective in Japanese meaning “pretty; cute; lovely; charming; dear; darling; pet”. This book, written by Zainab Khan, contains step-by-step directions for drawing a multitude of kawaii characters under the following categories:
- Adorable Food & Drinks
- Lovable Nature
- Cheerful Doodle Monsters
- Everyday Cute
- Charming Holiday Decorations
My daughter made a birthday card for her friend using the cupcake doodle instructions:
She also made a Christmas card using the Christmas tree instructions:
Love the kawaii star on top!
Once you have mastered the simple kawaii smiley face, the possibilities are endless!
k just turned eleven years old yesterday, and it is not as easy to find presents for this “tween” age. I would definitely recommend Kawaii Doodle Class for tweens, as well as adults who have an affinity for the kawaii aesthetic (such as myself!).
