WondLaFul Tour Second Leg

October 8, 2010

First off, a BIG THANKS to all who have come out in support of my first leg. I had fun reading and drawing for you all.

Here is the itinerary for the second leg of The Search for WondLa book tour 2010 with new dates added. I will be doing a short presentation, drawing and Q&A. I will sign ANY of my old books, cards and stuff that you bring, but please check with the store first about their signing policy. (I go into this a bit more on my site under the FAQs).

I will also have a limited supply of the limited edition WondLa sketchbook to give out FOR FREE at each event. I will likely be given them out to the first 50-100 attendees, so get there on time!

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.
