Why Art?

What is ?Art?? It?s widely accepted that art serves an important function in society. But the concept falls under such an absurdly large umbrella and can manifest in so many different ways.

    Well, that was unexpected. This is to my mind one of the best comics creations I have encountered this year, or in awhile. And not exactly a graphic novel, exactly. But it is, too, finally, as a story emerges. Let me explain: Great cartoonist/illustrator Davis creates a book with a ...

    What I thought would be a more expository text actually turned out to be something completely different. And fascinating. In many ways this is an enigmatic text, but multiple readings reveal a more coherent message, or messages, about the potential of creativity. ...

    Not what I was expecting but had a some thought provoking moments. Started by giving it a 3 but I am 300 pages into another book and can't say the same. This book took my 20 minutes and has proved more valuable so switched to a 4. ...

    I love this creator?s illustration and quirky worldview. The simple line drawings are deceptive. Your first reaction might be: anyone can draw like that. The simple style allows for an expansion in theme and focus on the unusual. This review doesn?t really make sense. Just read t...

    Every book I read by Eleanor Davis makes me cry at least once (basically including Stinky and Flop to the Top) and becomes my favourite ever book. I can?t wait to teach this one and read it over and over. It?s so lovely and moving AND FUNNY. ...

    Enjoyed it. Very quick read, but it was not at all what I was expecting. There?s an actual story, so it morphed into an emotional journey (very smooth transition). I found it to be quite colorful for a black and white book (except for those three pages of color), which, I suppose, te...

    [Read as part of the Book Riot 2018 challenge - a ?graphic novel? (it isn?t but whatever) written and drawn by the same person.] Lovely stuff. Yes, it answers the titular question (no spoilers though!). Surreal, funny, fluid, works beautifully as a digital comic, unfolds decep...

    Is art blue? Is it orange? How big is art? These questions and more are involved in Eleanor Davis's "Why Art?" There are several five star reviews already about how wonderful this book is, and about how they are going to sleep with it next to their bed. I'm very happy people hav...
