The Wednesday Drawing Show

I will be live on youtube tomorrow, Wednesday August 6th at 6.00pm UK time. You can see what the time is on the clock in the margin of this page.

I hope you will watch. I don’t know what will happen, but I have two cameras, one for me and one for drawing and I’ll be taking and answering questions. If you would like to get a question in early, this is the place to do it, in the comments.

See you tomorrow!

How to Draw Crabs and Sci-Fi Monsters!

Australian Artist, Bill Flowers has been down to the beach for the Wednesday Drawing Show this week. He’s been looking at crabs and showing us how to draw them. They are quite amazing creatures. Go and subscribe to Bill’s channel on YouTube, where he has a new wildlife drawing Video every Friday. This is hiis cartoon crab drawing and this is his more advanced Crab drawing.

I was inspired to turn my crab drawing into Robo Crab! I made Robo Crab’s shell out of metal plates and gave him replaceable titanium jaws on his pincers!

I also thought that crab body parts could make up a lettering design too.

So, lots of ideas, and this week’s drawing task is to draw a crab or something similar that inspires you and turn it into a Sci-Fi monster machine. Upload your drawings here I’ll show the Uploads on the Sunday Gallery Review Show here

Enjoy and see you next week!

Caricature – The Wednesday Drawing Show Jan 30 2013


This week, Nick from the WashedUpTV Channel on Youtube joins me to talk about caricaturing.

I got to know Nick when he surprised me with a caricature he had done of me!He’s made a series of videos showing his technique and thought process which you can see here. He’s also drawn many caricatures of famous people which you can see on this playlist. Nick has a very individual style and you will learn a lot from following his funny tutorials. Make sure you subscribe to his channel to keep up with what he’s doing.

I’ve had a dismal go at Drawing Nick and President Obama. Caricature is a real skill. by drawing faces everyday, you build up a knowledge of how they are put together and also what it is that gives a person their unique character. Over time, you’ll build up a dictionary or vocabulary of shapes, noses, moths and eyes, and you’ll be able to spot people’s outstanding features and put all your knowledge to work. A bit like knowing a lot of words and knowing how to put them together to write a story. It’s all practice!

Brian, who is a Fine Arts Student, has written to tell me that has started up a Thursday Drawing Club! What brilliant idea! I made him a logo along the lines of the Wednesday Drawing Show.

It struck me that you could have a drawing club any day of the week! All you need to do is invite a friend around for tea, watch the Wednesday Drawing Show and have a go at doing the weekly task together. You could do this as an after school club, an Over Eighties club, A town Library, college or University club. The Wednesday Drawing Show is for everyone – age doesn’t matter at all – have a go in your own way. The secret iS not to talk about it, but do it!

When you’ve drawn something and shared it, then you can have a cup of tea and a chat!

Go to the Club Page to find out more and choose which day of the week you want your club and to grab a logo to get you started making posters and invitations for your friends!

I messed up the “Sunday Gallery Show! I should have reviewed the snakes! I’ll do that next week, but you can see last week’s “review here, featuring eyes drawn with rubbish materials.

I am so short of time over the next few weeks, the production quality may go down a bit on the show and there are no captions either, but I’ll do my very best to get the show out every Wednesday.
