Dinosaurs Don’t Draw : doodle download

Dinosaurs Don’t Draw


Dinosaurs Don’t Draw . . . or do they? Elli Woollard and Steven Lenton show us a prehistoric reptile who does doodle in their newest book, Dinosaurs Don’t Draw (published by Macmillan Children’s Books).

Dinosaurs Don't Draw spread1

“Dinosaurs don’t draw, they stamp and stomp and ROAR! But there’s one little dinosaur who’s not like the others – he’s not fierce and he doesn’t fight! Instead he draws, on everything, all of the time. His romping, stomping dinosaur family just don’t understand. But when everyone hears the THUD of a terrifying T-Rex, they soon see just how powerful pictures can be.”

Doodle Bugs : doodle download

Doodle Bugs is a doodle activity originally created for our second mini mag, themed “In Your Garden” (hopefully coming soon with any luck!) With Spring in the air, and the warming weather, it seemed like the perfect time to doodle bugs.

Have you ever noticed that some bugs have silly names like “robber fly” or “royal walnut moth?” In this doodle challenge, you’ll have to draw some funny-sounding insects. Click on the image below or here to download Doodle Bugs. Happy doodling!

Doodle Halves download created by @EmilDrawing


This Doodle Halves download comes to us from 11 year-old Emil de Graaf, an avid doodler, and his clever mom. To inspire her talented son to create, Emil’s mom cropped photos she found and challenged him to doodle-bomb* the missing half.

Field Notes doodle download


Field Notes doodle download


Our Field Notes doodle download was inspired by Claudi Kessels’ charming nature doodle bombs.* What began as an instagram challenge has become an iconic part of Claudi’s illustration work. We were even lucky to chat with Claudi Kessels in our 3 1/2 Questions.

*What’s a doodle bomb, you ask? Doodle bombing is when you draw over photos, magazines or newspapers. We have a Gallery Show Call for Entries called “Doodle Bomb,” and we hope to see yours!



Claudi’s doodles looked so fun, we thought that we needed to give it a go! We took some photos from our backyard, and created a doodle download for you to play along.

Click on the Field Notes image below to download. Print, then fold the page in half twice, to create a mini booklet of Field Notes doodles.
