I was looking through my little sketch book for other things I use it for, and I found a couple more Emberley sections. So here’s one. But that’s not want I actually wanted to talk about. I wanted to show you that I use this little book to work out tangles that I’m having difficulty with! In this case, it was Peanuckle. I tried for a long time to work this one out.

In the last Ed Eberley doodle installment is the Planet of Zort! This comes from the “Big Green Drawing Book”. This wonderful book is full of things that can be drawn by using the following simple shapes: triangle, square, I, C, D, O, (, ), and scribble! If you can draw those things, you can draw any of the things in this book! (Does this sound familiar?) There’s adorable Práta People, Snakes from every angle, Racing Cars and animals, Greengrin, Pine Island and Zort.

Last Friday, I introduced you to a style of doodle drawing created by Ed Emberley. Today, I am continuing that journey. On this page in my little 4” x 6” sketch book, I’m illustrating some the various places that might live in the imagination in the “Emberley Style”. So grab your pencil, or colored finliners and create your own imaginary world, or tiny story! When you post it, make sure to use the tag, #doodledoit!

If you haven’t already met, I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce you to Ed Emberley! Mr. Emberley is an artist and illustrator of children’s books. Of interest to us here are his kid’s instructional drawing books. Of these, my favorite is “Make a World”. This book shows you how to use simple shapes to create everything from an astronaut to a castle by combining simple geometric shapes.
