by Amber on February 3rd, 2016

Guys, this is a fun one. If you have a youngling Star Wars fan in your house, they’re going to love this episode because A) Brady gives Yoda and Chewbacca impressions a-plenty and B) they’ll learn to draw their favorite Star Wars characters!

You’re going to love it because, well, because it’s not you doing the impressions or teaching the art class. Don’t forget to arm the kids with paper, a pencil and an eraser before getting started.

If you haven’t already, be sure to sign up for not-too-frequent emails from us! We have a printable Star Wars drawing Starter coming soon that’s perfect for using with the Star Wars tutorials. Don’t miss it!

Its full-spread world-starters get kids started on their own stories, and there are prompts in the back of the book for writing, creating, building, and more! Available at our shop and on Amazon.

Draw With Me Reveal!

by Amber on October 2nd, 2015

We’re to the end of our first week of #SCDrawWithMe, our community project where we take three things and mix them up in an image of some sort.

To everyone who participated, thanks for joining the fun! If you missed it, jump in next week by:

+ finding the three words (they’ll be posted on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter),
+ mixing them up in your own picture, and
+ sharing your image with the hashtag #SCDrawWithMe

Usually this project will be solely on Social Media, but we’re posting it on the blog this week to give an example of how it will work.

As a reminder, this week’s items were “flying,” “box,” and “dragon.”

Here’s a time-lapse video of Brady’s offering:

Draw With Me :: A New Community Drawing Project!

by Amber on September 29th, 2015

SCdrawwithme title square

Our new community drawing project is for all ages and is a quick way to share a little imagination and whimsy. We’ll do one each week for the next few weeks and then use your feedback to plan its future. Ready?

Here’s how it works.

  1. We’ll provide three words/elements/things.
  2. You (or your kids, or your very clever hamster) draw an picture combining all three.

(Drawings can be as simple or elaborate as you like. If you need help getting started, watch Brady’s drawing tutorial for ideas.)

Then, share the image at your preferred locale:

+ on Instagram, use #SCdrawwithme and tag @seriouscreatures
+ on Facebook, use #SCdrawwithme and tag @seriouscreatures
+ or Twitter, use #SCdrawwithme and tag @seriouscre

Post anytime during the week; Brady will be watching the feed and will comment as often as he can. (Please note: we can only see your drawings if your feed is public.)

On Friday, Brady will share his own contribution and when possible, post a video of it coming together.

(Don’t forget to peruse other’s drawings and share words of encouragement! We’re always more fun together.)

And as always, send us your thoughts and suggestions. We’d love to make this as fun as possible for everyone!

This week’s items to incorporate are:
