Is storytelling the secret to illustration? Meet Renita Boyle Live

The teabag I painted in this session!

On my live drawing show today, I’ll be talking to storyteller extraordinaire, Renita Boyle. We will talk about the role of storytelling in drawing and illustration, we’ll discuss mental health for creatives and we’ll be doing interesting things with Tea bags! (As well as having a cup of tea!)

How to know what to draw – (when you don’t know what to draw!)


YouTuber George Owens asked me to make a video about how to come up with drawing ideas. Watch this video to see what I think will give you ideas.

If you really can’t think of anything, just do one from my channels on YouTube – I have well over a thousand videos to choose from!

Otherwise you need to fill up on ideas. You should be bursting to the seams with ideas! You get ideas by doing stuff and learning stuff at museums and galleries through book and the web – try watching interesting stuff upon TV instead of celebrity nonsense!

Always have a sketchbook on the go – even when you are watching TV!
