Draw an Abominable Snowman

Here is my latest how to draw video. I filmed part of this is Schaumburg Illinois where I was doing school visits for a week. They had two feet of snow and it inspired this idea for a funny how to draw video. You can see more of my how to draw videos at

Happy Drawing!

2 NEW books coming out SOON!

Yes, two new books coming out. Drawing Monsters With Letters 2 and Drawing Fun, Friendly Pets With Lowercase Letters. Both are going to be really fun books and both are in my all new FUN format. The new size of my how to draw books are 6"x9" and 48 pages long instead of 32 pages. So way more drawing and much easier for kids to throw in a back pack or for mom to stick in her purse. Both of these books are due to come out in early March.

NEW - Drawing Sea Animals With Numbers! 2nd Printing

NEW! Okay, almost new, the 2nd printing of Drawing Sea Animals With Numbers. All new art work, two new characters to draw, and just a great new look. You can order your copy here LINK.

My NEW book is out!

I feel funny saying this is my NEW book when it is a reprinting of an older book, but it looks so different from the old book, that it seems new...and in fact it is new. Does that make any sense? Now it would be much cheaper for me to just print the old file, not to mention the time of not having to recreate all new artwork, but I want my books to be the very best they can be. The brand NEW Drawing Sea Animals With Numbers looks awesome! I am extremely pleased with the NEW look and feel of this book. You can purchase a copy of the book HERE.

You Tube FAN

So I was looking trolling YouTube and came across this video of a young girl teaching others how to turn the letter "B," into a monster. I loved it. When I make my drawing videos I wonder if I get the message across about drawing and creating art. I saw this video and it made my day. I would ask anyone who takes a look at this video to hit the like button and leave a nice comment to encourage this little lady to do more amazing artwork and videos.
