Motown Magic on Netflix Nov 20!

Motown Magic, the musical animated series I was fortunate enough to write eleven episodes for launches on Netflix this month! Featuring more than 50 newly recorded versions of classics made famous by iconic ‘Motown’ record label.

“The series follows Ben, a wide-eyed 8-year-old with a big heart and an amazing imagination who uses his magic paintbrush to bring the street-art decorating his city, Motown, to life. Each 11-minute episode features a plotline inspired by the themes and characters of a Motown classic by such acts as Marvin Gaye, The Jackson 5, Lionel Richie, The Supremes, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder and Robinson. Among the folks performing the new versions are Ne-Yo, Skylar Grey and Trombone Shorty.” – Deadline

How-To: Draw A Face

In this Get Arty drawing tutorial I show you how to use some basic guidelines to draw a generic face. You can use these guidelines to make sure you put the features of a face in roughly the right place! PS. When I say it’ll improve your drawing skills by a billion I may have been *slightly * exaggerating.

Get Arty Season 2 is airing now in Australia 7am weekdays on 7Two and if you’re in Australia, New Zealand or South East Asia you can catch Season 1 on Foxtel’s Discovery Kids Channel!
