F is for Friday Fan (Art)

November 5, 2010

Just like last week’s entry, here is another gift given from my recent book tour. This time it is of a character inspired by my nonsensical alphabet book, G is for One Gzonk and was drawn by a young imaginologist named Simon.

Here is what Tiny DiTerlooney would say about this:

“The Mominchacha scuttles

about on his many legs

smiling a blocky smile

after eating 20 eggs.”

Keep going Simon! Only 25 more letters to go…

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.
