Friday Fan Art

June 24, 2011

Recently I received a nice note from Anish Mohan, a 3d computer artist working in India. Anish said, “I have been a BIG fan of your work from the time I got one of those Spiderwick Field guide books. Your concept creatures are full of great imagination and detail. Loved the way the entire book was made with so much imagination too.”

Anish has taken those illustrations from Arthur Spiderwick’s Field Guide and created several 3d computer model renditions for his portfolio which you can see at his site here.

Best of luck with your career as a modeller and animator, Anish. I can’t wait to sit down and in a movie theater and see your name in the credits.

Keep dreaming, keep drawing.

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.
