A Furry Friday Fan Art

January 14, 2011

Manuela Schulz, a soft sculpture and textile artist from Germany, sent us some fantastic pictures of the Spiderwick phooka this week. Check it out:

The phooka is made from Alpaca and mohair and looks like it can pose as well. THAT IS SO COOL!

And if that wasn’t enough, Manuela also made this beautiful unicorn. Sophia LOVED this and wants one for a pet.

Check out more of Manuela’s wonderful work here. Perhaps you can order a phooka or unicorn of your own. In fact, I think I am ordering one…

Never Abandon Imagination Tony DiTerlizzi: Never abandon imagination.

Imagination is a world of possibility that exists within each of us. It is what makes us uniquely human. It is our creative fingerprint that touches and influences the world around us. Imagination is essential to art and science; to innovation and prosperity. It gives us hope, calls us to action and leads to change.

Whether it’s fairies, dragons, robots or aliens, all of my children’s book characters are siblings born of my imagination – an imagination strengthened through years of encouragement from family, teachers and friends. While so many others abandoned it during their transition from childhood to adulthood, I fiercely held onto mine, hoping for a day when I could share it to inspire the next generation of dreamers. Innovators. World changers.

Imagination empowers us to envision and create a reality of what could be. We must hold it dear, foster it and never abandon it.
