Friday Fan Art !

May 22, 2009

Nicolas has given us a wonderful glimpse into his own Arthur Spiderwick-inspired field guide to the faerie world. Its awesome for me to see fans collecting data on the elusive invisible world. I especially love the page on goblins where he’s included real goblin tooth items, including rose thorns! I wish I had thought of that, it makes perfect sense! Keep on drawing Nicolas!

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.
