Hey all, I hope you're having a good Friday.  I just found out that my publisher, FOCAL PRESS, has just uploaded a few videos I made to coincide with the release of my new book, "CHARACTER MENTOR" (April).  The first one is a "why I wanted to write Character Mentor video" (which you may have seen before) but the last 5 are short "Drawing Tips" videos that I think you might like.  I'm hoping to make more.  They will live on my new website soon (Shhh, I'll tell you about that in a bit!), but for now check them out at the FOCAL PRESS BLOG: bestanimationbooks.com/general…

PS. Look at the link in you browser when you click it.  You'll notice they got my name wrong. :)  As a twin, you gotta get used to that....

Thanks for these mate =)

I actually got a copy of your first book the other day and am enjoying going through it. Will definitely be looking at this one too when I get the chance.

Thanks for the tips, Tom!

Since I'm trying to get better at this drawing thing (and feel like I never will) I did some doodles while I was watching them. Since they're you, I figured I'd share. :)

Oh man! That's good but I look like an egg head! Well, I AM an egg head, I just don't like admitting it! I got a laugh out of it, thanks!

Ha ha, my lack of drawing skill is probably going to make the pictures a lot less flattering than they would be if I could figure out this whole "appeal" thing! :)

Your art is great. I'd hate to be however old you are and still not have a unique identity thanks to a duplicate. Siblings are great most of the time.

People getting your name wrong must get annoying after a while.
