The Wednesday Drawing Show – Magic drawing on the The Wednesday Drawing Show

It’s the (Wednesday drawing show intro sequence) So what’s on the show today We have Magic drawing – News about a meet
up next week, in London, for shooraynerdrawing channel fans I’ve got a terrific book review
– What’s in the mail? and the Wall of fame then How to keep it clean and some advice
about self esteem! I saw some Picasso prints recently and he
used an etching technique that he used that I thought I could use in an almost magic drawing
technique. I got this great burin from Derwent, that has a tiny, shiny steel ball on the end.
if you draw into the cartridge or bristol paper with the point it leaves a dent in the
paper. You can then draw over the top with graphite – like they do in spy movies to get
the phone number of the evil bad guy! I was in Ely Cathedral last week looking at some
brass rubbings of knights in shining armour and I realised yo could do something similar
with this technique. I love it. have you got any tips for the show? let me
know and I’ll give you a shout out. Well, talking about shootouts, I was visiting
Northgate High School in Ipswich last week. We did some great drawing there and Dexter
of UnitedGamersUK asked me to give his channel a shout out! well here it is UnitedGamersUK!
Shame I somehow lost the video of their great Wolf drawings – maybe they’ll send me some
of the best drawings for the wall of fame! I’ve not done a book review before, but I’ve
just been re-reading, yet again, it’s such a good book this – Understanding Comics, the
invisible art, by Scott McCloud. It is the most extraordinary thing. I first
came across this book in a Library when I was supposed too be telling stories to children.
I was so engrossed in reading this book,I didn’t notice them coming in and they had
to come and drag me away. As soon as I got home , I got straight on
and ordered a copy for myself. And it’s a comic book… it’s a comic book about comic
books. It explains how comic books are put together and it explains about sequential
art and how the ancient aztecs started it and the ancient egyptians and how even the
bayeux tapestry is really a kind of comic strip. It goes on to explain some really deep
concepts and if you can understand and get your head around a lot of this it will really
open your mind and expand your ideas of what you can you can do with comics. There is so
much in here that I can’t begin to explain how good it is, so I would make sure that
this is going to be in your Christmas Stocking and just to help you, I’m going to put Amazon
links down below. This is a fantastic book and I cannot recommend it more highly. I’d like to say Thanks to Scott McCloud for
writing such a fantastic well- thought out and considered book. What’s in the mail?
What’s in the mail? What’s in the mail?
What’s in the mail? Yes, we have mail! woah! This is from Amanda Lockley in Plymouth in
the UK and she’s a big fan, I know, she watches everything and comments frequently. She’s
sent a picture. This is from her daughter, Isobel, who is 6 1/4 that’s the Ginger Ninja
and this is a picture odf a Jaguar/Mercedes by Jacob who is aged 7. You don’t have to
be so young to send drawings in. It doesn’t matter if you are 72 year’s young or whatever.
there are so many people of so many different ages that each this show just send your drawings
in and I’ll put them on the Wall of Fame – which is where I’m going to put these right now. and next, all the way from East Kilbride in
Scotland, this is from Julia, aged 100, whose originally from Poland, but she’s lived 61/2
years in Britain. First of all she’s sent me a Christmas card, which you may recognise
from from one of my drawings – and these beautiful flower drawings from my videos – here’s a
gorgeous Christmas reindeer – and this fabulous drawing here with the
Shoe – shoo – do you get it? shoo! Thank you very much Julia, these are going up on the
wall of Fame! I want to get this wall covered in your drawings!
finally from Emilio Stoppenlenburgh, from Holland – it says, “ooh! mysterious package!”
inside we have – there’s a pencil – total shock productions – cartoons , caricatures,
strips from Antwerp. Hi Shoo, I’m 13 and I’m from Holland. I made this Cartoon for you
to say thanks for all you’ve done and all you’ve learned me. You might recognise me
as HarryPotterBest on Youtube, yeah, Harrypotterbest comments a lot on my videos. I know you very
well. We talked a lot on the comments. Ad if you want to leave comments, leave them
in the box below! Emilio says I sent the pencil I used for the
cation too, I thought you might like it – it has magical powers! OOOOOH! That’s where the
Harry Potter bit comes in – it’s a magical pencil wand. Emilio has sent this great cartoon. Hey everyone,
today were going to draw the moon, but lets not talk about it, lets… Ha! knock knock
knock open the door – open up! – You wanna be an astronaut? – sure! – that’s me saying
I want to be an astronaut – that evening – shoo tube on the moon! great! That is going up
on the Wall of Fame! Thank you very much. I need another pin – oh there we are! All sorts of people from all around the world,
male, female, young and old, all watch my videos in equal numbers, so if you want your
drawing on here, I don’t mind how old you are, just send it in! I love getting stuff in the mail! Yay! I’ve decided I’m going to have a meet
up for fans of my Youtube channels. Next Thursday, the 13th December at 2.00pm, at the British
Museum, I will be by the Lion, the great big lion in the Great court, so meet me there
. If anyone comes along, then I intend to go to the Ancient Greek department and look
at Pots and the amazing designs and and learn stuff from them.. So come and draw with me.
those kind people at Rotring pens are sending me 40 Tikky Graphic Pens to give away, so
the first 40 people, if there are that amount of people turn up will get a free rotting
tikky graphic pen. And the First three who turn up and say “I love the shooraynerdawing
Channel” will get an exclusive Shoo Rayner Sketchbook! It’s going to be so exciting meeting up with
some of you in real life. If you want to keep up top date with what’s happening make sure
you are following me on twitter, that’s @shoorayner on twitter, where I’ll keep everything up
to date. So I hope you’re going to be there if you’re
not you’re going to be square or something like that. I’ve often been asked, on this channel, how
to keep pencil drawings clean. You know what it’s like, you’re working on your masterpiece
and then you put your great sticky mits on the drawing and – ooh! no! the pencil gets
all smudged. Well, the answer is simple really. Get a clean sheet of paper and mask the drawing
with it so you can rest your hand on the drawing without smudging it’s obvious when you know
– but someone either has to tell you or you have to work it out yourself. Have you got
any other great drawing tips you’d like to share – let me know in the comments box below. Now I often do advice videos, because I know
how lonely it is being an artist and you need to be [pushed along a bit. Just recently I
did a video about being dyslexic, because I’m dyslexic and I understand what it’s like. NowI had comment from VickiDynamite on that
video and she says she’s offended that I put everyone who’s not dyslexic down by saying
they are boring and average and not gifted and she asked me to make a video response
to her complaint – I’d be pleased to. Vicki says “now i feel like my self- esteem
has gone down due to the fact of your saying dyslexic people will be better than me at
what i want to do” Vicki – really! for one thing – I cannot lower
your self esteem. Only You can do that. The level of your self esteem is entirely your
choice. If you start saying that someone else has lowered your self-esteem, then that is
your choice to lower your self-esteem because you are starting to blame other people. As
soon as you blame other people for your problems, that’s when it all goes wrong, that’s when
your self-esteem starts going down, because you hand over the power to other people. And
you know, Vicki, in choosing a name like VickiDynamite I don’t think you have any self esteem issues
at all. To dyslexics life is like a brick wall and
they have to find ways to power it down or to go around the side and to be able to do
that they have to work twice as hard and they have to think differently. If you think differently
and work twice as hard as anyone else, you are going to be a success. That is how the
world works. In my video I didn’t say that Dyslexics are
gifted – I said that Dyslexia is a gift – that is because it forces Dyslexics to work really
hard – to power through problems – to go around the side, to think differently. An average
person with average abilities is going to live an average life because they can’t be
bothered to put that extra work in. Vicki, you say you want to be an architect,
you want to help people by building new schools and hoses and everything. You will be and
you will help people and your going to have an iterating and successful life, I can tell
that by the way you wrote to me and the initiative that you’ve shown in your questions and the
very feeling that you’ve had where you’ve been incensed by what I’ve said m- you’ve
obviously got passion and all those things will come together as they do with Dyslexics.
Hard work, initiative and passion, that will bring anybody forward in their career. Good
luck to you. Well that’s all for this week. Thanks for
watching and I really hope I’m going to meet some of you At the british museum next week
and I show the video the week after. Well I hope you enjoyed that and if you did,
make sure you are subscribed for more Wednesday Drawing Shows. And if you are in the mood
for drawing, go and learn how to draw a poinsettia flower and make someone a lovely Christmas
Card or just try the Mystery Drawing. Check out my other channels and in the meantime
keep drawing, drawing, drawing – practice, practice, practice and, if I don’t see you
at the British Museum, I’ll see you next time, you take care now. bye bye!
