Wow! An 11-year-old kid did today’s Google doodle, which is one brilliant doodle – I jumped when I saw it and then looked for information about it, as one does – I thought it was perhaps a variation on John Tenniel, creator of the brilliant illustrations of Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking-glass. I was not thinking “probably an 11-year-old kid.”
The Google one is animated. Audrey Zhang’s is a still.
Yesterday the Handmade Parade in Hebden Bridge, today this. Yay art. Art makes me feel optimistic.
Visit Google’s homepage today and marvel at the intricate and interactive doodle created by an 11-year-old Long Island girl.
An animated version of the drawing that recently won Levittown fifth-grader Audrey Zhang the national 2014 Doodle 4 Google contest went live on the site at midnight Sunday and will be on display throughout Monday.
In an interview Sunday, Audrey, a student at Island Trees Middle School, said she was “excited” to see her masterpiece brought to life, but she wasn’t planning to be awake when it debuted at midnight. She said she would see it when she woke up Monday morning.
Fabulous job, Audrey.
