Friday Fan Art!

May 15, 2009

We got a great pile of Friday Fan Art just waiting to be uploaded over the next few weeks, starting with these character images from The Spider and The Fly from Jessica.


She is in the eight grade and is already taking existing subject matter a juxtaposing it in a different art style – in this case manga/anime. That’s my kind of thinking Jessica!


Keep drawing everyone, and be sure to check out some of the cool pieces coming up in the coming weeks!

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.
