How to draw a perfect Rob Ford in four simple steps

How to draw Rob Ford is a question we ask ourselves daily. While some artists find rendering Ford's likeness easy, and others have spent tens of thousands of dollars going to art school to learn how to caricature our Mayor (that's a class at OCAD now), those of us less inclined to properly hold a pencil - you're not supposed to grip it fiercely at the lead line, who knew?? - have been left struggling. Until now. How to Draw Rob Ford (howtodrawrobford.com) is here to hone our mayoral art skills in four easy steps. Turns out it's pretty much all balls and lines for Rob.

The website offers step by step PDFs, a traceable option for beginners, and an Instagram-ready option. Customer testimonials tell the story better than I ever could, so check them out. So, now that you can draw Rob Ford, what should you do? Here are some ideas: make paper dolls. Start - and win - office games of exquisite corpse. Make masks and wear them to the bar. Add Simpsons characters. Hold an art show with your friends. Tag the city (with chalk, with chalk!). Use simple illustrations to show Ford supporters the error of their ways. Send one to your mom before snail mail is gone forever. She'll be so proud.

After you perfect your RoFo sketching skills, don't forget to donate to the Center for Addiction and Mental Health.
