Catching a glimpse of this piece across a building site took me straight back to my childhood and my favourite children’s picture books authored and illustrated by Richard Scarry. Particular favourite books were ‘Busy Busy World’ and ‘What do People do all Day’, the latter even made an appearance in a TV commercial with me and my sister, but that is a whole other story.
I have no idea when Haka painted this wonderful piece of Lowly Worm driving in his apple car, and I have probably only just noticed it because of the building site possibly exposing the wall. Haka certainly has a knack of escalating levels of nostalgia with his picture book character series of pieces, but this one absolutely is my favourite so far. I now feel like I need to find a copy of one of Richard Scarry’s books, just for old times’ sake. Perfection.
