If you’re looking to branch out with your drawing skills, it’s definitely worth taking a look at Kyoodoz kawaii food illustration tutorials. While the tutorials are a step up in difficulty from more the simple doodle videos we often feature, setting them to the lowest playback speed makes them super easy to follow. There are so many that I could see being a part of a super cute Hobonichi spread or sketchbook collage…but here are my favorites!
One of the simpler drawings that may be good to start out with as a beginner is from the video on how to draw kawaii macarons!
Summer is approaching quickly, so the kawaii bear shaved ice art video would be good to keep in mind for a summer-themed layout.
Dorayaki is one of my favorite Japanese confections, so I absolutely had to bookmark the kawaii dorayaki video so I remember to use it in my journal at some point!
There’s plenty of videos featuring savory food as well as sweets, such as the super cute kawaii California roll sushi illustration—this one looks pretty easy to master as well!
And if you’re looking for something a little more difficult/detailed, there’s also a tutorial on how to draw a whole kawaii bento box. It’s so cute I want to make it for real.
There are dozens more videos over on the Kyodooz channel—check them out and let us know in the comments which one is your favorite! Do you like to use illustrations in your journal/planner? I love using illustrations and doodles like these to either match my layout theme, document my day (like what I ate!), or just fill in blank areas if I don’t have as much to journal about.

When she’s not barricaded in her pink craft room creating something, she can be found reading, playing Animal Crossing games, or baking something to satisfy her massive sweet tooth. Andi is currently taking a mental health break, but hopes to be back in 2023.
