Friday Fan Art!

October 22, 2010

Emily, from Milwaukee, Wisconsin has been a fan of my books for some time and has sent me the awesome drawings to prove it. She did this sketch of Mr. Moon from Jimmy Zangwow that was done back in the fourth grade:

…and this sweet pen and color rendition of the phoenix from Arthur Spiderwick’s Field Guide.

…keep drawing Emily! You’ve got a great talent!

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.
