Amazing Christmas Video inspired by my books

How amazing! Father N Son Art TV Vlog channel on YouTube, who are based in the Philippines have made a Christmas Themed drawing video based on characters from my books. It’s quite amazing and a huge amount of work by Chrisdy. Make sure you like the video and maybe subscribe to their channel too.

Live Drawing Show


Recorded earlier, join me for a live, recorded drawing show.

I’ll be talking about water brushes, using them and showing you how to look after them and anything else that comes up in the chat.

Join me for an hour or so of chat about drawing and illustrating. Any ideas, put them in the comments box below. See you later!

When and where do I get ideas? The answer is revealed!

Recently, I was asked “When and where do you find you get most of your inspiration and ideas for stories?”

That could have such a quick and simple answer like – teatime in the kitchen or shopping in Ikea – but it really isn’t as simple as that.

I mentioned before that I think ideas are living things, like viruses, they are looking to “get you” to make their idea come true. If you are not the right person, then they fly away to look for someone else – sometimes they even leave you feeling lost and empty – bereft – and sometimes jealous or angry when you see someone else have success with the same idea!

In this video I explain where and when I get ideas and what I do about them when they come knocking on the door!
