SuperGraph Review

Now you can draw ANYTHING!


Art and craft features very highly in our house with making things on the sewing machine, the Cricut machine, card making, and plenty of drawing, painting, jewellery making and more. Arts and crafts are an excellent creative way to spend your spare time and a great hobby – there is so much out there that you do.

Do your children like to draw pictures but complain they are no good at it? Well help is at hand with SuperGraph from John Adams. SuperGraph means that you can draw anything, creating stunning life-like artwork.

SuperGraph is a unique drawing aid that allows you to easily copy images and draw anything. The idea is that you look through the viewer at what you want to draw/copy and a ghosted image is projected on to the paper for you to draw and create your masterpiece. And an added bonus is that this toy does not require any batteries or a screen to use it. It is also portable so you can take it anywhere and draw anywhere you please.

In the box:

  • SuperGraph® unit with picture support
  • 2x picture sheets to get you started
  • Sheets of paper
  • Instructions

When first opening the box, the SuperGraph unit needs some quick assembly. This only takes 5-10 minutes and the detailed instructions explain how and show photos on how to do it. Make sure to remove the protective film from the mirrors. Once assembled it is quite large, but when finished using it, the pieces can be unclipped and stored in the base of the unit (again the easy to follow, well-illustrated instructions show you how to do this) and it even has a carry handle so that you can easily take it anywhere with you – perfect for if you wanted to take it outside for a spot of landscape drawing.

Using the SuperGraph is easy. If you have a picture that you want to copy, just clip it into the picture support on the SuperGraph, line up the optical viewer and a ghosted version of that image magically appears on your sheet of paper ready for you to outline and draw. If you want to draw a building, person or object that is in front of you, you just remove the picture support and then look through the viewer to copy the scene.  

With SuperGraph it makes drawing pictures easy.

Overall, SuperGraph has gone done very well. It is fairly simple to use once you get used to lining up the viewer and looking through it. You also need to learn to position yourself properly so that you are not putting your arm in the wrong place and blocking the projected image.

SuperGraph helps create some great images and helps to practice drawing skills. You won’t get a perfect image every time as you have to keep your eyes in the same position, move slightly and the lines move slightly. It also depends on your hand control etc. as to how good of a image you will get. But the outcomes are very good.

As well as copying images from paper, a book or even a tablet. The picture support can be removed to draw real-life images of people, objects and different scenes. This works great, again as long as the object is not moving.

The SuperGraph unit is best used on a flat surface such as a table as movement can cause images to change (it doesn’t work as well having it sat on your lap for example).

It is a lightweight unit, portable and easy to store. It has a carry handle so that children can easily take it from one place to another and is light enough for them to do so. The pieces unclip easily enough and store in the base when you want to transport it or put it away.

It is an excellent aid in helping young artists to draw great pictures as well as gain confidence in their drawing abilities and to practice drawing techniques. It can be used it with A4 sheets of paper so you can get quite large finished pictures and have plenty of space to create those masterpieces.

It doesn’t rely on batteries to work as it uses mirrors to project images and it is screen-free. Whilst it is screen-free, there is an app available for IOS and Android tablets so that you can draw pictures on the tablet rather than paper.  

SuperGraph is excellent for helping to create some great artwork and keeps children busy for quite a while, concentrating and focusing on what they are doing. It does take time and practice, as with anything, to create the perfect pictures but it is a great way to get started and helps even the less precise of artists to create something worthwhile and something children can be proud of.

For children that love drawing that want help to create better pictures, the SuperGraph is an excellent tool to help. How only is it helping children to create better pictures, it also helps them to learn how to hold pens and pencils better, how to position their arm and draw naturally whilst learning to draw in different ways. It can also help with fine motor skills, concentration, hand-eye coordination, visual perception, focus, attention, patience and confidence in their drawing abilities.

We think that SuperGraph would make an excellent gift this Christmas for children who love to draw or want to get better and practice their drawing skills.
