Dove Real Beauty Sketches

I saw this Dove advert and like many would have skipped it but due to it being art based I watched all the way through. The genuine comments and views of how women view their own beauty struck a cord. I meet many throughout my creative day who are so hard about themselves and negative in many ways. It was so good to see the contrast of how the women described themselves to the FBI forensic artist,Gil Zamora and how they were described by others. The Dove campaign highlights how we see ourselves and how others view us, often completely differently. A must for all to see. Congratulations to Dove for expressing these views in such a visual way.

Mousehole Cat

 This is a lovely story about the Mousehole Cat and his adventures. The video just gives you a taster of it and it is well worth getting the book to read and the illustrations are beautiful.
One of my students is basing her body of work on this and much much more about Cornish tradions.
