It’s the off-season doldrums of July and that means it’s time for an art lesson! Today we will learn how to draw the big tomato, Andy Reid, coach of the Kansas City Chiefs. 

To start off, no one should draw on an empty stomach. So grab a healthy snack! I don’t have anything particularly healthy in my fridge, so I’ll eat this KFC Double Down.

Nothing helps creativity like pure grease

Now that we are full of fuel, lets get to work. Wipe the grease off your fingers, because we need to type! No one should go straight into drawing without some quality reference photos to work from. Reference photos help give you some grounded things to work from and to inspire you. I’ve gathered together some reference photos I’ll need here:
