Since March 24th 2020 the UK has been in lockdown because of Corvid 19. As this has been rather terminal to my entertainment career, I decided to challenge myself by asking people for suggestions of what to draw. So the ‘Lockdown Art Challenge’ was born. First broadcast on the 23rd March, I asked for art topics. I then spent that day creating before unveiling my creation the next day. below is everything I have created on the show.
As this was the first broadcast it was used as an explanation for the premise of the show, therefore nothing was created. My topic given was ‘the sail into Venice’
This was the first day of the second week. Over the weekend I had decided to take on a different challenge. The Bake Off Challenge! Given a kettle as a subject my wife and I would create a cake in the shape of a kettle! This turned out to be far more difficult than we had expected! Especially when it turned out we had limited resources and equipment.

Bake Off Challenge Week 3, A Gingerbread House of Cards.
We forgot to take photos before the testing, so the top part of the house is made of alternate biscuits not used in the actual challenge.
The result of a new feature on the show, The weekly Compilation. It is created from all the ideas received I did not use during the weeks speed draws.
The black and white cartoon was done for Captain Tom Moore’s 100th Birthday and a greetings card was created from this and sent to him.
