From Anorac Summer Colouring Book


In terms of space and place this image feels like it doesn't really belong to any particular space or place. It feels quite random, but when you actually begin to look at it closely, you notice words and a kind of sequence to it, almost like a piece of writing that you read left to right. It features drawings of little creatures, instruments, rainbows, trees and clouds. It feels like when your looking at it you could be following the artists train of thought through doodling, or maybe he or she was listening to a piece of music at the time and it represents different parts of the song, the instruments could be the instruments the artist was hearing, the expressions on the creatures faces could be the way the music sounds. It could be a timeline or a journey of walking through an area and the things that the artist has seen or heard have been jotted down. I don't know exactly what it represents, but i think instead of being a specific space/place, it sort of flows and its like your supposed to read the illustrations as they are set out, like a page in a book.(emily)
