Toffle Towers – how to draw Chegwin Toffle

My new book Toffle Towers book 3 is out in one week! It’s written by Tim Harris and illustrated by me. You can grab a copy at the links at the bottom of this blog post.

To celebrate the release of third book in the series, I’ve prepped a bunch of behind-the-scenes blog posts. I’ll show you how I designed the characters; how I designed the cover for book 1; how I designed the hotel’s exterior and interior; and how I designed other elements like the shuttle bus and the title typography. But today, I’m showing you how to draw the main character, Chegwin Toffle.

Grab a pencil and paper, then click the video below to follow along.
