Watch me draw Scrooge from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

I was asked last night if I might do a drawing inspired by A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. For reasons I explain in the video, I thought I wouldn’t. But then I thought that perhaps I should!

This is a long video of me drawing Scrooge from A Christmas Carol. I do a lot of talking and reminiscing and even play you something from the band I was in in the 80s!

This is for Gabe, one of my Patrons, who loves Christmas and love a Christmas Carol even more! Feel free to comment. Having done this version, I realise that I should be doing something quite different – I should maybe try to bring Scrooge up to date a bit?

Drawing a Christmas Bow and Bell in under two minutes

I made a short on YouTube last week of drawing a chair, which I did in about a minute, It was very shaky, as I was whiling the camera and there were a couple of complaints about that – and the vertical phone format – which I don’t like.

So I thought I’d try some speed drawings myself – not speeded up, but against the clock.

What should I do next? Some thing Christmassy, I think.
