Designs on Saving the Planet

So proud of Primrose (aka SW). Along with the designs of four other competition winners from school, her artwork is prominently displayed on the cab of a brand new lorry; one of a fleet belonging to a recycling firm in Hampshire.

The message is loud and clear, "Recycle and Save the Planet!"


When the lorry turned up at the school, we were eager to see how the finished product looked. Then, one of the teachers spotted it and said, "Here it is, on this side. Those are definitely Primrose people." I have to agree, her figures are certainly distinctive. Those of you who visit regularly will already know this.


Of course, she couldn't pass up the opportunity to sit in the driver's seat, original design in hand.

  1. How perfect! Of course the driver's seat is a total must. What a perfect idea for learning through art! Great job, SW!

    1. I'm often critical of the education system, Karen, but this kind of initiative, where school, community and environment is linked with a common purpose, gives me hope.

    1. Thanks, Teresa! When she saw her work on the lorry for the first time, her expression was priceless.

  3. If that lorry had driven by our house I'd have recognised those people. Well done, SW. You are the planet's future.

    1. We'll be on the lookout for it ourselves, Lynne. Such a good project, and such wonderful work by all five competition winners. They should all take an extra bow.

    1. Quite a thing eh, Gabrielle? Good that children are not only getting the 'green' message, but spreading it too.

  5. I have been watching SW's drawing and painting develop over the years via SqSun and always knew she was destined for great things. Never mind a tipper truck, it is the Turner prize I have her down for in a few years time.

    1. You know, Alan, if anything, she's becoming more prolific these days. Now turning her attention to animation. Goodness knows what we'll be treated to next!
