Happy Halloween!

October 27, 2010

Halloween is one of the favorite holidays at the DiTerlizzi household. I like the costumes, the candy and the traditions – like carving Jack O’ lanterns. I also like anything old, antiquey, or vintage. In fact, if you add the word “vintage” to just about anything, I’ll be into it. I simply love things from the past. Especially vintage Halloween decorations. So, for you my dear ghouls and goblins, some vintage-inspired coloring pages that would make fine decorations (if I say so myself).

Simply click on the image for a hi-res jpeg that you can print out and color. Enjoy!

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.
