Book Description

Learn to draw 50 inspirational and important figures from Einstein to Beyonce in the wonderfully popular chibi style.

Chibis are mini versions of Japanese anime and manga characters and are defined by their large heads and tiny bodies. They also have characteristically large eyes and all these features together give them a huge score on the cuteness factor. This book marries the widely popular chibi’ style with important figures from the worlds of sport, entertainment, science, natural history and many more. The book shows you how to draw 50 well-known characters in the super cute chibi style from Albert Einstein and Muhammad Ali to Simone Biles and Malala Yousafzai. Featuring fabulously clear step-by-step drawings and clear instructions, this instructional book is a great way to teach anyone to draw while introducing them to countless inspirational figures whose achievements inform our world.
