'Now that's how you create art! … For anyone (at any age too!) who likes to draw, especially those like me who needs a bit of inspiration, Hirameki is perfect'– This is Life Blog

What is Hirameki?
In Japanese, it means a flash of inspiration, which is just what artists Peng & Hu had when they saw a cow with a splotch that looked just like a famous filmstar – and realized that even the splodgiest blot could be easily turned into something amazing. Since then, their passion for collecting blots and dots has taken over their lives.

• Highly creative and a little bit anarchic, this is the perfect outlet for all those who are bored by drawing inside the lines
• It's for everybody: even the most inexperienced doodlers can produce hundreds of sensational scribbles.
• Readers hone their Hirameki skills in seven sections, allowing them to progress from single drawings to complete blot-to-blot scenes
• Artists Peng & Hu guide the reader with prompts and hints

Hirameki is the creative phenomenon of 2016!
