How to Draw… Weasels

Elys Dolan, creator of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize-shortlisted Weasels and Nuts in Space, is the latest illustrator to take part in The Guardian’s How to Draw series, with a typically hilarious guide to drawing your own weasel.

Readers of Elys’ picture books may be familiar with the cast of characters that feature here:

“Health and Safety Weasel” (complete with furious expression and very visible hi vis jacket):

“Drill Weasel” (comes with his own massive drill)”

And, of course, “Weasel Leader” (the monocle makes him look more refined):

You can read Elys’ full set of instructions – and learn how to draw these Weasels and many others – at The Guardian’s site, here.

An absolutely hilarious picture book featuring a dastardly plot to take over the world, questionable coffee beverages, and very big drills, Weasels is packed with cross-over humour to amuse children young and old. The art is stylish yet accessible, and full of details for poring over time and time again – there’s always a new joke to find! Here’s a look inside the book:

Buy Weasels online from Waterstones.

Good luck drawing your own Weasels – we’d love to see the results, so please do tweet them to @NosyCrowBooks!
