How to draw the Covid-19 Coronavirus for Art Beginners and all homeschoolers. Medical Illustration has a long history and it all starts with a Pencil. Even though most medical illustrations are now done digitally as an artist you have to learn to draw so I have deon this in a similar way to a Comic Book piece of art.

Drawing Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell Thatcher Joe Charleston on Strictly Come Dancing

Here’s my pencil drawing portrait time-lapse of Joe Sugg ‘Thatcher Joe’ and Dianne Buswell doing their Charleston dance on Week 2 of Strictly Come Dancing 2018 on BBC One.

The A4 pencil drawing shows YouTube Star Joe and Diane out Thatching a Roof in the British Sunshine (Joe was an apprentice Thatcher) along with two inserts from their wonderful Charleston routine that they danced on Saturday 29th September 2018 to ‘Cotton Eye Joe’ played by the wonderful Dave Arch and his Orchestra, the Strictly Come Dancing House Band.

Joe has never danced before and has astounded the Stritcly Judges, Craig Revel Horwood, Dame Darcey Bussell, Shirley Ballas and Bruno Tonioli, presenters Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman, Zoe Ball on It Takes Two, the live studio audience at Ellstree Studios and millions watching the tv at home as well as himself, with his ability in a few weeks training to do very well attaining 31 points for his second ever dance.

Joe is the first YouTube star to do Strictly and will probably not be the last. Will his sister Zoella, Zoe Sugg, and her partner Alfie Deyes be on Strictly in 2019?..

Drawing Courntey Hadwin Howie Mandel’s Golden Buzzer on America’s Got Talent 2018

Drawing time-lapse of Courntey Hadwin Howie Mandel’s Golden Buzzer on America’s Got Talent 2018

Courtney, from Hartlepool England, came out as a quiet and shy 13 year old and then let rip with a stunning rendition of Hard to Handle by Otis Reading. Courtney’s electric performance and voice was compared to Janis Joplin by Howie. The other judges, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Simon Cowel were all visibly blown away during Courtney’s performance and said so afterwards too. Host Tyra Banks who was off stage with Courney’s Dad was equally blown away.

Judge Howie Mandel told Courtney the story of how Clive Davis once discovered Janis Joplin. “Oh my gosh, you are not from this era. You’re from a whole different era. I’m not Clive Davis, I’m Howie Mandel, and I can’t sign you to a record deal. The only thing I can do for you, young lady, is give you this” then he hit the Golden Buzzer. Courtney was moved to tears by Howie’s words and Golden Buzzer and her dad come on stage to hug her.

After the show was broadcast Courtney posted on Twitter;“I didn’t know what to expect when I auditioned for AGT but the golden buzzer was more than I ever could have dreamed of. Thank you so much Howie Mandel I am so happy and can’t thank you enough xx”

The portrait drawing is A4 and shows Courtney singing Hard to Handle and the elation of the America’s Got Talent Judging panel as Howie presses the Golden Buzzer. Drawing with Faber-Castell series 9000 and TK-Line pencils.
