“Design some rain boots and an umbrella to keep you dry from Vancouver’s rain.” “Draw a pod of orcas in an awkward family photo.” These are just a couple of the whimsical prompts found in Canada Doodles by Megan Radford (Gibbs Smith, $9.99), a new book that sneaks fun facts about Canada into all the ideas for budding artists. The Doodles series has already tackled cities such as New York, Los Angeles and Boston, but those places simply can’t compete with the quirkiness of Canada: “Banff National Park features wildlife overpasses above the highway. Draw a pack of moose driving convertibles across one.” Inspiration, indeed. At local bookstores.
