I’ve been teaching high school and primary online for the past three months. It was an interesting experience and I’m happy to say that having tried it out I think I’m most suited to primary school art teaching. It’s a whole lot of fun. So I’ll be doing more of that. It wasn’t straight forward but I developed a way of drawing with the kids whilst I drew in Photoshop. The results from the students were truly wonderful. I also developed a ninja like ability to rustle up a video tutorial. With the help of some fabulous online resources like Deep Space Sparkle and The Arty Teacher there’s no stopping me!

Having worked out less teaching time though it’s back to some serious illustration time. I’m getting out and about (not literally of course, I’m not allowed out of my suburb!) online scouting for projects, and drawing dancing animals in between.
