Travel for kids often means sitting in a plane, train, or car with an iPad on their laps—head down, headphones on, watching a movie or playing a mind-numbing game. In Doodle Journeys, an interactive guidebook, Dawn creates prompts that inspire children to pick up their head and look outside the window. They are challenged to imagine where they are going, what they might see. They are also dared to envision worlds that don’t exist.
The book will offer suggestions of marking tools (showing a TSA-approved artist kit), ways to adhere photos, and tips for how to document with doodles. Young explorers will use prompts on pages overflowing with colorful, vibrant backgrounds to encourage them to note and document what’s around them. Throughout the book are travel-inspired doodles and quotes.
Dawn DeVries Sokol is the author of several doodling books, including Art Doodle Love, The Doodle Circle, A World of Artist Journal Pages, Year of the Doodle, and the forthcoming Doodle Zen, all with Abrams. She is also the author of Doodle Diary, Doodle Sketchbook, and 1000 Artist Journal Pages. Often referred to as the “Doodle Queen,” she teaches popular workshops through her blog (www.dblogala.com), at Interweave Press’ Create Retreat, on Creativebug.com, and through her DVD workshop “Art Journaling: Pages in Stages.”
