The images and hand drawn text underneath shows Simon's need to categorise order the world that surrounds him, think how ordering can aid or in some cases hinder understanding during this weeks drawing tasks.


Scarabottolo's collections of objects and beings all arranged in a space, think how you can personalise the images you are collecting through drawing.
