Rob Biddulph is an award-winning author and illustrator who has increasingly used video to connect with his ever-growing audience.
Before turning to illustration full-time, Rob had established himself as a leading designer and art director, winning awards and steering the visuals for some of the UKs most iconic mags including the NME and the Observer magazine.
Having already caused a storm on social media with his #packedlunchpostits and behind the scenes book development, during the UK lockdown Rob came up with the idea of teaching kids how to draw live online – to help relieve many peoples’ homeschooling stresses. He found a lot of grateful parents!
His #DrawWithRob campaign grew exponentially and led to not only a #DrawWithRob book – another best-seller, but also a Guinness World Record for the biggest audience for a live art class ever – via YouTube.
Rob delves into the story behind how he got started in writing books and how video has ultimately helped him grow his audience.
