Christopher Hart Wants to Bring “How to Draw” to the DS

Casual, Console

If you’re a gamer that hasn’t heard of Christopher Hart, that will soon change, as the artist and drawing instructor is looking to bring his line of educational art products to consoles, starting with the DS.

Hart’s books in the How-to-Draw franchise have sold over 2.5 million copies around the world, and have helped struggling artists learn to draw all manner of items from basic cats and dogs, to manga, superheroes and fantasy villains. After seeing how successful THQ’s line of “Drawn to Life” video games have been, Hart wants to capture that same success with his games (the Drawn to Life titles allow users to draw objects like vehicles or weapons and then interact with them in-game).

“How-To-Draw lends itself to the category of interactive games and software,” says Hart (as reported by  “I can offer the most popular, cutting edge drawing programs based on my books. I have characters and cartoon styles that are targeted to specific age groups and genders. I have built-in market research: we simply select the best-selling books from amongst all of the Christopher Hart library of 60 plus titles, and turn it into e-content.”

Hart hopes to also bring a game(s) to the Xbox 360, Wii, and PS3 that would be compatible with each console’s (in the case of the 360 and PS3 – eventual) motion control capabilities.
