Day 20 – A Picture tells 1000 Words


To inspire our Wednesday, it’s over to Mike Maynard!

“I’m 71 and I live in Wednesbury in the Black Country. I thought people needed a challenge that would challenge their mind but be easy to do. Images are used to sell all kinds of things…”

Create an image that sells an idea. It could be a small idea, a big idea – anything that you feel passionately about, or want the world to see!

Use whatever you have – draw or paint a picture, or take a photograph. You might add words to your image.

Can you think of a time when something creative has changed your mind, inspired new ideas or made you think about something differently?
