"Drawing is looking, and looking is loving," Wendy MacNaughton
In an invitation to slow down and look at the world around you, graphic journalist Wendy MacNaughton illustrates how drawing can spark deeply human, authentic connections. An illustrator and graphic journalist with a background in social work, Wendy MacNaughton believes drawing is an essential tool to help everyone -- young and old -- slow down, look closely and connect with one another.
When we really pay attention and focus and fully pay every ounce of our attention, we will discover a lot more than we can imagine. The more attention we give to what is going on around us, the more we will notice, with our awareness heightened we will see things that we have often passed by without a second thought and life becomes more beautiful and exciting!
It is important to remember to pay attention to the people around us, especially our loved ones. Attention is at the heart of maintaining good relationships ;if we cannot give our attention fully then what can we expect back?
