Lee Atkinson Turns Doodles into Magic
During the last five years I have watched my granddaughter, 'Little Miss Moops', not only discover the joy of art and life through animation, but learn valuable life concepts through educationally animated television shows. And, this has opened my eyes to the value animated art has in our society.
Lee Atkinson, our currently featured animated artist (one of the renown Atkinson family of artists), tells of how it occurred to him that he could well turn his idle doodling into meaningful artworks. These two paintings show how far, doodles can travel when given a chance.
