Do a Doodle a Day

Chris-RiddellDid you hear about the announcement of the new Children’s Laureate. The Children’s Laureate is a well known writer of children’s books who promotes and encourage children’s interest in books, reading and writing. This year the new Laureate has been named Chris Riddell, the illustrator and author.

He says his mission is to encourage creativity and “drawing every day”, he wants kids to doodle more.

“There comes a point where children decide that they can’t draw. I want to say, ‘don’t stop drawing – carry on, and do a sketch a day. I think stories can grow out of the visual. It can be an engine for literacy.” – Chris Riddell

Chris is documenting his role as the Laureate with a daily log with various sketches.
