My Dads artwork has been a massive part of my life from before I can remember. I feel like I know his characters, as a child I would even give them names, I would follow each and every line he drew, and would even try to count the dots he would use to shade an area. I now watch my little girl do the same with him. She watches the pencil and the lines he creates, making those lines into a cat, and seeing a smile creep onto her face and its like watching me and my Dad 35 years ago.
I came across an article from the Darlington And Stockton Times about a guy in the region called Matthew Bryan, who leaves his work for others to find. The reason - to brighten up the lives of strangers.
If I was lucky enough to find something like his work, it would certainly make me smile and brighten up my day. He quotes "Its not about getting recognition, I just think we can make the world a better place by sharing the things we love and are passionate about and I think art-dropping is a lovely idea".
