BAD NEWS. We have online school. Incase I didn’t mention, that’s BAD NEWS. You’d think it’d be great, but I can tell you from experience that it’s NOT. Let me elaborate: online school is boring, frustrating, stressful, confusing, boring, nightmare-ish, infuriating and most of all BORING. But, there’s good news! Online school is hilarious! I’veContinue reading “The Google Meet Cat”

Here’s a little doodle I did today – I hope you like it! Keep drawing, guys, and have a great Friday. ✨
“Aaah!” Is what I said today on the way to science. When I fell down the stairs. I don’t know how it happened, but it was probably because I was carrying SO much stuff. I must’ve tripped over my coat. Or my scarf. Or my bag of books. Or just my own feet. It wasContinue reading “Aaaahhhhhh!”
Probably not, to be honest. Unicorns don’t exist. Even if they did, they would probably just be a less wrinkly species of rhinoceros. Also they would be such a big tourist attraction that they would get extremely overweight from all the free cupcakes offered through the cage bars by worshipping children. So. Now that’s clearedContinue reading “Could my PE teacher be a secret evil unicorn?”
Hey guys, today I wanted to show you a little series of photos I’ve collected.

That doesn’t sound like a very good job, does it? I would not want to be a detention lady. But maybe that’s not her job? Maybe she just likes being the one to hand out detentions. Hmmm. Sometimes a lady comes into the classroom, usually just before lunch. She has long dark hair and aContinue reading “The detention lady”
Hello everybody. Today we are going to investigate masks. Not halloween masks (halloween was cancelled), but the horrible stuffy ones you now have to wear in shops and at school. There is a problem. You can escape shops (if there is a parent handy), but not school. School is as unescapable as a thousand-meter-deep pitContinue reading “Suffocation vs detention. Which is worse?”

Sketching out a picture is the very first step in the process of doodling. So what are my tips on how to do it? Let’s have a look at how you can improve your doodle sketches… Use a suitable pencil.
