"Slim and unique, this "catalog of inspiration" enthusiastically celebrates the mighty marker." - Publishers Weekly
"This lively manual pays tribute to the ubiquitous, universal, and highly user-friendly Sharpie marker. Many readers will be surprised to learn that there are dozens of types of Sharpie available today, which Goodman (design, Sch. of Visual Arts; coauthor, 40 Days of Dating) delineates in the introduction. A clever history of the marker, rendered in Sharpie, introduces the guide included in the introduction. The heart of the guide is the many short creativity exercises that are meant to inspire readers to try new things and surprise themselves. Various artists share their own Sharpie experiments, with lots of tips and intriguing ideas thrown in along the way. These permanent markers can be used on almost anything, giving the reader the sense of open-ended possibility and immediacy. VERDICT This title holds wide appeal for young, mature, beginner, and seasoned artists alike." - Library Journal

Top Customer Reviews
Timothy Goodman is an illustrator, design and AD from New York and he loves using those Sharpie markers.
This book is about what you can draw on with Sharpies and features the artworks of other artists who use these markers. The book's written in a conversational tone with big fonts that are accompanied by fun art.
After a few pages showing you what are the types of Sharpie markers available in the market, it goes into the history, and then the different types of creative work created with them. There are artists who use the markers to draw, doodle, write, decorate gifts, create murals, draw on skateboards, on plates and other objects that can be drawn on.
There are themes that you can explore, such as creating patterns, or drawing on objects that are discarded or neglected around the house. Then it features artists who have created works with that particular theme.
The main thing to note is this is more of an inspirational type of book rather than instructional. The instructions come in the form of one page with brief few paragraphs describing the themes or styles you can use with the Sharpies, followed by examples.
Overall, it's an interesting book that doodlers, sketchers or marker users might like.
