Book Review: Mark Hearld's Work Book

Simplistic and charming, this collection of over two hundred assorted works of artist Mark Hearld revels in his almost childlike delight in color and the common creatures most people ignore. From pigeons to robins and squirrels to fish, each animal is rendered with the overriding impression of joy regardless of the medium used. A multitalented artist, Hearld works with paint, paper, textiles and prints with impressive ease and what’s more, shares his sources of inspiration while explaining a bit of what went into creating much of the work showcased here. Whether you are a fan of Hearld’s work or discovering it for the first time, this book is a treat simply to flip through and will appeal to children and adults alike.
