YEOVIL LITERARY FESTIVAL 2021
THE OCTAGON AUDITORIUM
Author, illustrator and draw along genius Rob Biddulph helped everyone get through lockdown with his brilliant #DrawwithRob videos. Find out all about Rob's journey from budding artist to award-winning author and Guinness world record holder as well as hearing all about his latest books. Fun and drawing guaranteed!
His first picture book, Blown Away, was published in 2014 and was only the second illustrated book to win the overall Waterstones Children’s Book Prize. Since then Rob has written illustrated eleven of his own picture books, illustrated many books for other authors and was the official World Book Day illustrator for three consecutive years (2019 – 2021)
In March 2020 as schools across the globe began to close their doors, Rob posted a teaser video for a draw-along of his dinosaur character Gregosaurus from Happy Hatchday, and that was the start of Draw with Rob.
There are now over 80 videos (with new draw alongs still added every Saturday) which have been watched over 4 million times on YouTube alone. In May 2020 Rob broke the Guinness World Record for the largest art lesson when over 45,000 families joined him to draw a blue whale.
