How to draw an evil cockroach!

Learn to draw an evil cockroach with pen and ink and a single colour grey watercolour wash to ad tone. A great style for black and white illustrated books.

After last week’s Scaredy Cats story video – The Killer Catflap – I thought I’d draw an evil cockroach this week. see the video here

It’s different to the way I drew the roaches in the book and video, mainly because I’ve been a bit more attentive to the true shape and design of a cockroach. Not too attentive though! This is really about characterisation – turning an animal or inanimate object into a humanised character

I’ve been made into a character!

I’ve been turned into a story character!

How can this be you ask?

I’m asking the same thing!

I had a text last night from Adam Frith who is a Creative writer from Manchester, starting a degree in animation in September 2017.

Adam has been writing something major and epic, that I can’t tell you about, but apparently I’ve inspired a character – The King’s Master of Art – apparently a minor character but a catalyst in the major part of the plot!

Sounds fascinating. I can’t wait to see how this progresses and what my alter ego gets up to!

I shall keep you informed. Meanwhile why not follow Adam on Twitter to keep up to date with what it’s all about?
