I LIKE draw­ing stuff. A cou­ple of years ago, when I was six, my dad de­cided to turn some of my draw­ings into pic­tures us­ing his com­puter. They looked re­ally funny.

Then he set up an In­sta­gram ac­count called Things I Have Drawn and we started putting my draw­ings and Dad’s funny pic­tures on the in­ter­net.

Last year it all went crazy and lots of peo­ple wanted to fol­low us. Now we have over 120,000 fol­low­ers. Amaz­ing!

When it went crazy, some news­pa­pers and TV peo­ple wanted to talk to us about it, and so I had to go into the TV stu­dios to be in­ter­viewed. It was re­ally cool.

A pub­lisher asked if we would like to turn our pic­tures into a book, which was re­ally ex­cit­ing. So we have been work­ing hard on new pic­tures and even my lit­tle brother Al has drawn some.

Our book is ready now and it is in loads of book­shops around the coun­try. It’s called Things I Have Drawn At The Zoo. I can’t wait to see it in a shop.

We have even made an ad­vert for the book. Me and my brother and Dad had to go to Soho in Lon­don to record our voices in a stu­dio. It was a great day and the ad­vert makes me laugh. It will be on at the cin­ema.

It has been fun do­ing the book with Dad. I don’t know if we will do an­other one, as Dad said my draw­ing is get­ting too good! Al and Do­minic
