My Yorkshire – a visit with Richard Bell


When I went to Yorkshire to visit my drawing pal, Richard Bell, an ITV film crew showed up to profile him. They shot us as we drew together and later, they took him off for a tramp in the wild.
See me act like a New Yorker and horrify the locals while painting a snack truck.
(ITV was kind enough to send me a tape but they have not posted the show online so I am taking the liberty of sharing it here.)

    It sounds you you acquired an accent. What great fun, I should require a film crew, wherever I go too!
    Nice job guys.

    I´ve recently acquired on ebay a copy of his Yorkshire book and it´s great! So much honesty in every little drawing. I´m glad he´s still well and working

    Even though Richard only lives a few minutes 'up the road' from me, I hadn't seen these videos of you two traversing the bohemian delight that is Dewsbury Market.

    Loved the clips. As a Yorkshireman currently living in Germany it was great to hear let alone watch them.

  5. Lainey

    Wow. I loved this, Danny! So, did you end up drawing more on this trip after the interview? What an interesting thing to do, to collaborate with a fellow artist in another country via drawings, and then to finally meet to draw together. How long did you stay? What else did you do? Maybe you should do more of these trips, have them all videotaped, edited, and then do a DVD project based on your last book.

    Awesome videos :) I love these Yorkshire towns. The buildings and scenery are wonderful.  Cool to see you get some publicity!

  7. Carla

  9. Paula

    At first listen I could detect an Australian lilt in your accent! As an aussie and big fan of your books and drawings I found this quite exciting :P
    Great little vid. But more importantly, what is that fabulous brush pen you are using?! ;)

  10. Jonas

    Lovely video! I also detected an accent…couldn´t say from where. Any way great videa and good work, congratulations!

    I always dream of the life of a drawer or a photograph, who can make a relaxed life but experience a lot, know a lot of people^_^ And of course the sensitive heart for beauty and the surroundings.

  12. Lisa Taylor

    This guy is a fraud. The accent is from Brooklyn, NY.

  13. DannyGregory

    I assume you're joking, Lisa.
