Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
I like to produce one book a year of the art students work from my school - MEGANZ School of Visual Arts. 2011 I produced the successful wee book - Don't eat me! The 2012 book will be one to watch out for, coming soon called 'Windows by Day and by night.'
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
The artists represented in the 2011, Don't eat me! book are between the age of nine and sixteen. This book is great for art teachers for ideas and for artists alike. The students worked on character development and looking at negative space and applying a photographic element to their drawings. They produced some really neat work.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
Don't eat me! is a book of students drawings from MEGANZ School of Visual Arts, which will inspire continued exploration. The students had great fun creating characters from their imaginations and from what they have seen and adding images of themselves into the mix. A great wee book to add to your art book collection or school library.
