I’m doing an event at The Carle this weekend, Pioneer Valley…

December 6, 2010

Well, its not exactly a full-blown event. But I am doing an interview at The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art with Andy Laties in their “Talking Words & Pictures” program this SUNDAY (Dec. 12th) at 11:30 am. The event is open to public at only the price of museum admission. Of course, I will be happy to sign any books that you bring, borrow or buy. This is it! My last event of the year, so come on out! I’ll even bring a handful of those limited edition WondLa sketchbooks to give away. Seeya Sunday…

TD Correction: It is on SUNDAY the 12th, not Saturday as I had previously noted.

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.
