Doodling is good for you – so get Doodling!

Doodling is good for the brain and for your creativity. As you doodle, the left hand side of the brain begins to go to sleep and all those annoying thoughts about what, where, when and how, fade away.

The the magical process begins. The right side of the brain, given time and space to be in charge, somehow come up with all the answers that the left side of the brain is demanding.

If ever you are stuck for an answer, stop trying to force it out, start doodling instead. You will be amazed!

Meet Sue Hendra – Author of Supertato

Meet the wonderful Sue Hendra, who writes and illustrates the amazing Supertato books with her partner, Paul Linnet. I had the chance to ask her a few questions when were both working in Netley Marsh School on Empathy Day – 12th June.

We both had a great day telling stories to the children and talking about empathy and how to understand other points of view by reading books and inhabiting the characters

Get the hilarious book, Supertato here in the UK

How to draw Mr Twit

My friend Laura Sheldon, is a fellow Firefly author and also a wonderful teacher. When  she asked me how her class could draw the Twits, I looked on line to see if Quentin Blake had done a video. He hadn’t. I know how busy he is, so I though I’d help out and make a video myself, showing how  to draw Mr Twit. I’m not sure how the class got on – Maybe I should ask to see?
