Video: Chris Riddell's How to Draw Part Five

Let master children's fiction illustrator, and the Waterstones Children's Laureate, Chris Riddell show you a thing or two about drawing.

Posted on 27th January 2016 by Sally Campbell

In celebration of Chris Riddell's new book A Doodle A Day, and in celebration of the art of doodling generally, we have been running a series of videos featuring the delightful Children's Laureate himself, Chris Riddell.

The aim of the series is simple: to get everyone - young and old - to dispel any reservations, to stop making excuses, to lift up a pen (or pencil) and just starting doodling.

In today's video, the last in the series, watch Chris Riddell drawing one of the contestants at a literary dog show that features in the Goth Girl books:
