My Youtube Channel is Changing – New Look – New Style

This video is for all of those who followed my youtube channels over the years – first of all thank you.

When I started YouTube I had a very different idea from how it turned out – in short I’ve been side-tracked a very nearly 10 years!

It has been an amazing journey but YouTube is not working for me anymore. I have learned so much about drawing by explaining and showing how to do stuff, but I feel that my work is done.

When I started out, hardly anyone was doing drawing videos, now there are thousands, many of whom are far better than me at drawing, painting and teaching. It’s time to do what I’m best at.

The wonder of YouTube is such that all the videos I’ve made will still be there, maybe forever, and that younger, more enthusiastic version of me, will still be there today, doing what I did then.  So what am I going to do?

Well, I’m not giving up on YouTube but the shooraynerdrawing channel will be changing.

I’m not going to be doing any more on the drawstuffrealeasy Channel either I just can’t afford the time of any longer.

The shooraynerdrawing channel now be all about stories, illustration and vlogging about my life as a children’s author.

It’s going to be the channel it would’ve been if I’d known 10 years ago what I know now.
I hope you stick with me and subscribe on YouTube if you haven’t already.

The next few weeks will be a bit messy as I close down a couple of other channels and move some legacy material to this channel, but I will soon be up and running with new material.
Many thanks for all your support in the past and I look forward to entertaining you for a long while to come

Why No Drawing Video Today?!

Why no Drawing Video today?! Because I am applying the seat of my pants to the seat of my chair and I am writing. I’m about 8,500 words into my 25,000 word children’s novel. My editor has brough forward the publication date, so I really need to get the first draft finished as soon as possible.

Need a drawing fix? The head over to my other channel www.youtube.com/drawstuffrealeasy, where I am doing Drawings from my book – published 17th May – called How to Draw Ancient Greek Stuff Real Easy –

You can pre order now on Amazon and all good book stores and get signed copies with a free poster from my online store.


A week on the road away from my desk

I’m home for the night on what will be a week long tour of schools and Libraries – It’s pretty exhausting! I’ve been to St Athans, Barry Island and Llantwit Major in Both Wales, then on to Bournemouth for the second time this month then off to Coventry and then a school close to home. Meanwhile the snow is back so I’m not sure if I’ll make it to Coventry at all.

Here a few musings made along the way.
