Doodling with Jim Henson

More than 50 Fun & Fanciful Exercises to Inspire the Doodler in You!

This interactive doodle book bursting with fun drawing prompts and whimsical exercises lets Jim Henson fans draw inspiration from — and participate in — the workings of his wonderfully colorful imagination.

Part One of Doodling with Jim Henson, entitled "Jim Henson's Sketchbook," features a collection of doodles, sketches, and scribbles taken directly from Henson's personal sketchbooks and note pads. Learn about his life and career while browsing through pages filled with offbeat and delightful doodles. A brief history explores Henson's influence on art, puppeteering, and television, as well as his simple yet profound philosophies of life.

Part Two of the book, "The Scribbles," contains easy, step-by-step doodling exercises inspired by Henson's original work — monsters, fish, birds, title treatments, signs, banners, borders, and backgrounds. The exercises serve no particular purpose other than to connect you to your artistic side and offer you an enjoyable outlet for total creativity. There are guidelines and suggestions, but there are no rules — this is doodling, after all!

After you work your way through Doodling with Jim Henson, you might agree with his philosophy that "we never really lose a certain sense we had when we were kids." And if you think that you might have lost that sense somewhere along the way, one thing's for certain — you're sure to find it again through this delightful book.
