A Mind Drawing can

 * be fine art on the wall – one that keeps giving as new things are discovered. I’ve heard they are great in a family day care setting – or in a family home or business office.

 * challenge how you see. Many people have returned with friends so they can see if they both see the Mind Drawing in the same way.

* be a conversation starter – when two people see differently, the next thing they do is show each other what they see, making Mind Drawing a great communication tool.

 * be a literacy tool – finding stories within a Mind Drawing.

 * help observation skills in pre-readers by playing matching games using sets of laminated pictures that I often include when engaging communities.

 * be used for relaxation – whether by searching for items within the picture (including my iconic four-leafed clover) or by colouring in the picture.

 [After completing the body of work for my Mind Drawing Children’s Stories exhibition, I’ll produce a print-on-demand book of the exhibition, possibly in a coffee-table format and also as a colouring book. I’m seeking the best way to do this so that the books are good quality and also affordable. But first I shall test the demand by producng an off line version to sell where I engage the community in Mind Drawing events.

UPDATE: In February 2017, a book of works from the exhibition was launched at the Cardinia Cultural Centre – the second stop in the Exhibition phase of the Mindrawing Children’s Stories  Project. These books are available at my exhibitions/workshops and other community events and from NewXpress in Pakenham.

Due to the success of the book, I am about to release the second print run to coincide with the City of Casey Winter Arts Festival.

This will be followed by an online launch of the book later this year.]
