This is an illustration of an Evil Lizard drawn with pen and ink and a single colour grey watercolour wash to add tone. A great style for black and white illustrated books.

How to draw a cute penguin chick

https://youtu.be/nmVJ2-GLEy0

25th April was International Penguin Day so I drew a cute little Penguin Chick. By way of a change, I’m using a pentel Brush pen, which is really black and also waterproof for watercolour painting. I’m still getting to grips with it. So different to drawing with a pen, where you have a solid connection and feedback with the paper. I’ll have to do more videos about it in time.

I’ve just finished page 140 of the Michael Morpurgo book that i’ve been illustrating all this month. That’s the last page – hooray! But then I didn’t like it, so I wanted to do it again.

This video will show you how I copy the illustration I didn’t like and turn it into one I do like.

Also there’s a load of chat about illustrating and techniques.
