2. Great Documentary. Finding Vivian Maier.
Guy buys locker of old negatives at an auction and then goes on to discover
this amazing unknown photographer. The images are beautiful, and her story well....watch it! http://www.findingvivianmaier.com
Bolt- is a concept/picture book. A boy who likes to makes up stories, makes up this one of how he lost
his left BOLT (the fastest sneaker on earth) The manuscript is spare but I still like it's simplicity.
Really would like to make this one. My goal is to have a more completed smartie by this summer for the Princeton SCBWI conference which I have been attending for a few summers.
Here are sketches from the BOLT smartie (dummy) on my drawing table.
1. Love this book http://www.theartoftheidea.com
Have had it hanging around for awhile and just picked it up again. All his observations are
both so true and funny. Also really enjoy the collages, If you are intrigued at all but ideas:
the where, who, what, how to them, check the book out.
Read the above, I couldn't believe it either.
showed this to my son who has trouble spelling
and he too was amazed and maybe a bit relieved. It seems all we really need to get right is
the first and last letter of a word for others to be able to read what it is.
My kids do not like to brush their hair. And I see the point, lately I have felt the same. It's like making your bed, it's just going to get messed up again. This smartie (dummy) titled HAIR I COMB AGAIN
was perhaps inspired by me chasing my boys to brush their hair. It is something I made awhile ago and I don't think it will ever get published but it still makes me laugh. Here are a few pages from it as it is, I made it fast and never went back to refine or redo the illustrations. It was a one draw collage deal. Kind of like a quick comb through, nothing fancy.
