Recently, I was at a mall I don’t usually frequent and having gotten lost trying to find a restaurant I was supposed to be at for a Christmas get-together, I chanced upon a secondhand bookstore. I went in to browse mindlessly, not looking for anything in particular. I was at the children’s section and I was made aware of a thought and a feeling; like a gut instinct kicking in: that I was going to find something special. I didn’t know what, but a few minutes I later, I spotted a 1970 edition of a Richard Scarry book. Bingo!
To make good on my promise a few posts ago about more frequent show and tell of work, here’s what I’m currently working on. [pinit] I’m trying to veer away from the bright colors I usually use to make my work a little more sophisticated in terms of intended retail audience. Less Walmart, and more Paperchase. Or to put it in a local context, less Baclaran and more Greenbelt. Haha what.
