Doodling is good for the brain and for your creativity. As you doodle, the left hand side of the brain begins to go to sleep and all those annoying thoughts about what, where, when and how, fade away.
The the magical process begins. The right side of the brain, given time and space to be in charge, somehow come up with all the answers that the left side of the brain is demanding.
If ever you are stuck for an answer, stop trying to force it out, start doodling instead. You will be amazed!
Over the last five years I’ve done quite a few Halloween inspired drawing tutorials – 46 that I’ve managed to locate – but I feel there might be a couple more hiding in my video list somewhere – I’ve made nearly 1000 video on Youtube now!
If you watch this video, it will show you all the available Halloween videos on youtube. Click on the one you like and it will take you to that video. If you can’t make up your mind which to do, go back to the beginning and watch them all again!
I saw this video and thought I’d share it with you as it’s such fun!

Many people have asked me to show how to draw a lego minifigure and Laurence Maher, a long time youtube follower, asked me again recently when I met him at The Great British Fayre. You can see all about it here.
I thought about which lego person I should draw and then I realised I could draw one that looks like me! Wouldn’t it be great to have a lego figure of yourself? What would you dress yours up as?
I was with Derwent Pencils at the British Family Fayre in Westerham, Kent on Saturday. I had a great time showing how to use watercolour pencils and aquatone sticks with Derwent waterbrushes great fun was had by all! great to meet everyone – very tiring but great fun :)
On the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of August I had the pleasure and privilege of joining Derwent Pencils and the Keswick Pencil Museum at CarFest North at Oulton Park race track. The place was buzzing with cars and families. The Festival is the brain child of BBC Radio 2′s Chris Evans. It’s a great weekend out for all the family with cars, food, music and lots for the kids to do.
The sun shone almost the whole time. We had our own marquee and were visited by hundreds of people coming to see what Derwent pencils are all about and finding out more about the Pencil Museum in Keswick ,where I will be showing how to draw scary stuff over the October half term holiday – 22-23-24 October. Come along, why don’t you?
Derwent donated a six foot long graphic pencil, just like the ones I use in my videos, but six foot long and a real working pencil! It raised £500 for Children in need. I had a lot of requests for how to draw Pudsey! Maybe I should do that for Children in Need this year?
It was a fantastic weekend – incredibly tiring – on our feet the whole time, meeting and greeting the great british public, showing them that it is really easy to draw, if you just pick up a pencil and have a go!
Come along to the Great British Family Fayre in Westerham Kent, next weekend, 31st August. We’ll be doing something similar there, but without the cars!

Max D from YouTube asked me to draw a Kawasaki Ninja Motor Bike and several other have asked for a motor bike. Well, I know little about motor bikes, but it’s all in working out the proportions. I hope this video helps.
Oh No! It’s full moon and the werewolves come out tonight! Learn to draw a werewolf – it won’t protect you but you might have a bit of fun. If you are doing the Summer Reading Challenge this will be good to get you in the mood for reading Creepy House stuff!
