“4me4you” visits The Coningsby Gallery which showcased Patrick George: Wildlife Matters
“In the same way that animals and faces start appearing out of cloud formations if you stare at them long enough, I enjoy doodling over a brief until an unexpected solution presents itself. Different elements can combine to give greater impact, or create a narrative..”
Patrick creates and publishes a range of children’s books with acetate leaves between each spread which allow the reader to interact with the printed page. The most recent title published in 2015 is called Animal Rescue, where the child gets to rescue animals by turning the transparent page: a baby elephant rescued from the circus and returned to its mother in the wild, and a tiger rug brought back to life and seen leaping from a tree, are two examples. It’s a gentle introduction to the importance of animal welfare.
