For the past few years I’ve been making how to draw videos on YouTube, sharing my knowledge and skills. Now I need your help to let me continue that work and make the channel grow into something more special.
My ambition is to build what amounts to an online art school for all ages and abilities, for those who can’t get to an art school – for whatever reason – who need to work at their own pace, building skills and knowledge.
There will be courses teaching drawing, watercolour, illustration, cartooning, lettering, how to plan and write, and lots, lots more.
I aim to make interview videos with other successful artists, getting their hot tips and inspiration for you.
There will be monthly assignments that you can join in with, to expand your creative mind and help you to build a portfolio of work to be proud of.
Art School Community feeling will come through hangouts and live chats, so that you can learn from others too, just as you would if you were enrolled in a bricks and mortar establishment.
I’m able to do this through Patreon.com – a truly wonderful idea that allows you to join in at whatever level that suits you.
You may just want to support what I’m trying to achieve for others. You may just want to watch and learn from the sidelines or you can dive in deep and get as much as you can out of what I think is a real opportunity to learn real-life creative skills.
If you want to take your drawing and illustration skills to the next level, come and join me and start learning and developing your creative potential.
The video below explains how the site works in detail.
II had the amazing privilege of being invited to a Summer Garden Party at Buckingham Palace last week. I was invited in my professional role as a children’s author so I had to dress up a bit. I bought a neat new suit and thought I should have a neat new tie as well. What I really wanted was a tie with my favourite Character, The Ginger Ninja on it!
I got a couple of blank silk ties on eBay – one to experiment and make mistakes on and one for real. If I ever tried painting on silk before, it didn’t work.The colour would spread like mad. I tried all sorts of things and in the ned found that Copic markers did a great job.
The outline had to be drawn sparingly and then filled in with colour. The black outline had to be last or it would bleed into the colours and make them very messy.
