Doodle Town

When I was a kid I did not doodle just to doodle. I always needed a project. I later tried to study fine art but my lecturers politely suggested I might be more suited for illustration. Art as a project. Art with a purpose. Which probably explains my later career as a graphic designer. Give me a blank page to doodle and I will just freeze. But give me a problem to solve, a project, and I will dive right in.

Meet the Artist: David Hockney, An Art Activity Book

Published to coincide with Tate Gallery’s phenomenally successful Hockney retrospective, this rich and expansive workbook is far more than supplementary material. Theory is explored but, after initially positioning us as art critics, Blake draws us in skilfully; in no time at all we are learning by doing. We move from pencils, to paint, to smartphones; from landscapes to portraits to set design. Inspiration is drawn from our reactions to Hockney’s finished work as well as his processes.

The Lost Horse

This is an unusual and magical story about a beloved statue of a man on a horse. What’s unusual is that the statue comes to life and at first only changes position when people in the museum aren’t looking. However, once the horse from the statue goes missing, wanders into the forest and befriends a previously lonely Lyla, the magic really begins. Lyla lives in an odd house that is ‘taller than the trees’, presumably alone, and before meeting the horse, spends her time in her bedroom daydreaming. With the horse in her life, Lyla’s days are filled with happiness.
