It’s a Small, Stick Figure World…

April 25, 2003 | Books I Read | By: Mark VandeWettering

When I was probably eight or ten years old, I remember going to the Book Vault, our local bookstore and seeing Ed Emberley’s Drawing Book: Make a World.
I remember asking my mom to buy it for me, but somehow I forgot about it, even though I thought it was a really cool book. Well, some thirty years later, I now own a copy. It’s a terrific little book on how to doodle interesting little stick figures. I find the bright colors, playful images and subject matter to be oddly intriguing as I near the end of my fourth decade on the planet. If you are caught in a dull meeting, this book will inspire you to doodle in new ways.
