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.

Check out my brand new Drawing site WWW.HARPTOONS.COM

Here is my brand new website where you can watch "How to draw videos." The videos are all based on my two new books Drawing Animals With Numbers and Drawing MOnsters With Letters. Now The site is still a work in progress, but feel free to visit and see what I have so far.

Drawing Sea Animals With Numbers

Sorry for the lack of posts, but I have been crazy busy. First, I have my new book that I just sent to the printer Drawing Sea Animals With Numbers. I am really excited about this book. Not only does it teach how to draw the animals in easy to follow steps, but it also has facts about each animal in the book. I have also been visiting schools all over Ohio. Luckily not one of my events has been canceled due to weather, but it's been close. The kids and teachers are really enjoying my drawing books and having a great time drawing with me. Then I have my freelance illustration work that has been really busy. I have six books I am working on right now, 5 puzzles and a bunch of other projects. The last thing I am working on is my new website A work in progress to say the least. This website is going to have how to draw videos for kids, online school visits, activities to download and much more. This is a work in progress so feel free to take a look at it, just keep in mind that it is still not finished. I will make sure to post updates for pre sales of Drawing Sea Animals With Numbers as well as some sneak peaks of the book.


Coming Soon!!

Here is the first glimpse of my newest book Drawing Sea Animals With Numbers!
After the success of Drawing Animals With Numbers and Drawing Monsters With Letters comes the latest and greatest book. After a school visit this fall I was inspired to do another drawing book using numbers, but I also wanted to have some animals facts in the book. I thought how cool would it be to learn a few facts about each animal while learning how to draw them.

I just sent the book to the printer so I don't have a solid release date, but I will be sure to let everyone know when I find out.
