How to draw The Boss Baby voiced by Alec Baldwin for art beginners

Here is my new How to Draw video from Dreamworks’ new digital animated movie ‘The Boss Baby’ whose character is voiced by Alec Baldwin. I haven’t done a How To Draw video for a while as I have been busy on other projects but here is the first of my 2017 videos. This is fully narrated and in real time too. Clips of my drawing of Cheryl and Michael Dunlop are in the film along with some of my other How to Draw art tutorials.

My beginners art tutorial ‘How to Draw Anything! The Basics Part 1 Using Shapes’ on youtube has now had over 200,000 views (As of February 15th 2017).

I produced this video in 2014 showing simple techniques that I learned from many books over 30 years ago about drawing and distilling them into a short 22 minute real time video to simply encourage people to have a go at drawing and to enjoy art.

Since then it has been lovely getting lots of comments that this simple art lesson has helped many people to enjoy drawing and develop their artistic creativity.

Lies, damn lies and statistics and drawing!..

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.
