San Diego Comic Con this weekend!

July 22, 2009


I hope everyone attending Comic Con International this weekend is as excited as Angela and I. It is such an overwhelming representation of art, books, films, games and other fun stuff, that my head is spinning for days afterwards!

I’ve mentioned my schedule already, but here is a quick link to it again in case you missed it.

Also, Simon & Schuster will be giving all kinds of cool MENO giveaways like this collectible pin:


So stop by their booth(#1017) and say “Please to meet Meno!”

I hope you like the new books, Ang and I are super-excited to share Meno’s silliness with the world. You can see more tonight at when we launch with a sneaky-peek of the website.

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.
