    This is fabulous! I love the process that you’ve created here from creating almost theatrical scenarios and drawing from them – I love the way that you use toys as a point of entry for this process. Really, really rich! And the drawings are incredible – such detail and depth!

      i wanted to say how inspiring I found these magical drawings. The quiet humour is delightful and the inventive compositions have been an eye opener, particularly the way the children have worked so freely mixing scales of objects, e.g the small duck on the large chair. The text accompanying the each drawing works perfectly with the image and suggests an exciting narrative, They all could be points of departure for small stories. This is a wonderful resource and I can’t wait to see where you take these ideas next.

        They are cute aren’t they. I tried it again in a school, this time working with set design – I’ll create the post shortly…

        best wishes Paula

    Also, Rachel Thompson used words and text as a starting point for drawing exercises to illustrate text:
