Doodle know who it is yet? Artist scribbles portraits of famous dyslexics to highlight condition

Artist and illustrator Vince Low from Kuala Lumpur creates artistic order from the chaos of pen lines to produce stunning portraits of famous faces.

Dr. Pat McGuire‘s insight:

I didn’t even know about some of these people having dyslexia, but it shows how prevalent it is.  The interesting thing for me is about Johnny Depp, since I already knew that his costars in the Pirates of the Caribbean series, Orland Bloom and Kiera Knightly, were dyslexics.

 

We need to increase awareness of this disorder as well as highlight that it doesn’t mean dumb, it doesn’t mean "can’t read", but does mean "difficulty with words or language".  Interventions to help these areas will only increase the possibilities for these already creative individuals.
