With the help of the imaginative mind of Marion Deuchars, it is possible to transform any smudge of a finger print into a fiery fox or an adorable piglet. The British-based illustrator and author proves that you’re never too old for playing with paint, and she transforms her inky illustrations into drawing games and craft-based activities that are leagues better than any old episode of Art Attack.
Let’s Make Some Great Art is one of Marion’s best known books, and it’s a superbly playful interactive book that allows the reader to explore the broad canvas of ART through drawing and painting. It’s a colouring book for a creative, and within the pages, Marion invites you to finish off the Mona Lisa’s smile, and teaches you a very ingenious technique for drawing a bike, which let’s face it, we all wish we could do better.
All of today’s posts are focusing on the speakers at Here 2014, picking out a particular project to enjoy once again. You can follow the action live over on our @HereLondon Twitter feed.
