You know, I am BIG in Asia…sort of.

(This was one I totally spaced out and forgot to post from awhile ago. I was reminded of it when I came across the files on my computer). Design Popular Imagination magazine (or DPI, for short) based in Taiwan, China, did a nice interview on yours truly last year. For those interested, the jpegs here should be large enough for reading (They are in English and Mandarin, just click’em). Otherwise, you can enjoy the lovely page design.

For my friends abroad, here is a direct link to the issue. Perhaps back issues can still be purchased…

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.
