Friday Art of Fan!

March 11, 2011

Our Florida neighbors dropped off a lovely sketch of my favorite space elf, done by a friend of their daughter’s.

I showed it to Meno and this was his response:

“I love color picture of Meno!

Thank you Earthling of name Diana.

I also work on pretty picture.

Please to enjoy Betty White!

Was to be in book the 2. But editor want The Hoff.

(Oh well. Win some and lose.)

Now Betty White everywhere. Who laugh now?”

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.
