Here is my new Youtube beginners art tutorial video. How to draw Jigglypuff the cute Pokémon character using cheap felt tips from Poundland. This is the second video, the first was Pikachu, using a set of cheap markers to see how well they fare. Enjoy the video and see how well the pens do.
Here is my full narrated video of ‘How to draw Kermit the Frog’ from the Muppets.
This is for beginners and takes you through a step by step process to draw Kermit. How to draw Denise Piggy is already online and Miss Piggy will be online next week.
At the beginning of the film I show my BSB drawing of Chris Walker along with drawings from backstage of Fusion Festival of Sigma with Ella Henderson, Clean Bandit, Labyrinth and Rudimental.
Interesting little article about drawing in the Independent that states ‘Toddlers who can draw at four are more likely to grow up to be clever’…
Grand statement and based on twins too which we were blessed to have. From the article ‘The correlation is moderate, so our findings are interesting’ and ‘Drawing ability does not determine intelligence; there are countless factors, both genetic and environmental, which affect intelligence later in life.’ which means ‘Thanks for the grant this really means little at all but we had to publish something for the money we had’.
And was this pointless study funded by taxpayers? Who knows but I will say that drawing and art are very rewarding at any age and not just for toddlers – though some art art schools and in galleries never progress from toddler style art 😉
Do enjoy any creative activity you may be involved in.
Here is a short overview Time-lapse film of my Drawing of Lil’ Dipper from the New Disney animated film Planes 2 Fire and Rescue. A full narrated film will be online soon.

Here is a full narrated video of How to Draw Hamm the droll Piggy Bank from the Toy Story films. This is for beginners and children of all ages so grab some popcorn with your pencils and have some drawing fun.
‘TO INFINITY AND BEYOND!…’ What a catchphrase from Toy Story’s Buzz Lightyear. Now it is raining where I am in England today so here is something to keep the kids occupied for a little while. A full narrated video of drawing Buzz to go with my others of Woody and Jessie. Hamm and Rex to go. Enjoy and please share the video.
Sheriff Woody has told me that I will be put in his Jail if I don’t put up the real time shading section of his ‘How to Draw Woody’ film so here it is. Enjoy a little holiday fun drawing Woody and the main video is in the previous blog post and links are in the Youtube video too.
In the video below you will see a simple way to help your drawing improve and put you in the esteemed artistic company of artists including the very famous British Landscape artist John Constable RA.
To keep kids of all ages busy for a while I have chosen Olaf from the Disney film Frozen as he is made up of nice simple shapes as a follow on from the ‘How to Draw’ parts 1 and 2 using shapes and shading. There is also a link in the video on how to draw an Audi A4 racing car using a grid too. So get your pencils out and have a go at drawing Olaf using a grid and then get creative with your own art too.
