Friday Fan Art- Manga Madness

September 19, 2008

This week we received quite a treat: this amazing Spiderwick manga by our old friend Annie!

We try to feature young artists only once, (so that everyone gets a chance), but this was just so cool, such a labor of love, that we couldn’t keep it to ourselves!


It would be great to post all 70 pages, but I’d never get time to respond to all the fantastic fan mail that’s been arriving, so here’s just a sample from chapter four:


Keep drawing Annie! Keep your eyes peeled, we are going to send you something VERY special for this fabulous piece of fan work!

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.
