Short thoughtful piece from a lifelong scribbler,
This review is from: A Short Book About Drawing (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Andrew Marr is of course one of the BBCs best known news correspondents, reporting and commanding interviews with insight, making difficult and complex situations digestible to the viewer. And he is famously fighting his way back from a life changing stroke. But all his life he has sketched and in this book he reflects on what drives him and millions like him, not necessarily (but sometimes) world famous artists, often ordinary people, to draw. He speaks of what drawing asks of in the viewer and what it does for the creator. It is generously illustrated with his own sketches and paintings, some paper and canvas, many created on his iPad. Inspiring and insightful.
