Harold and the Purple Crayon

Bookish Nail Art

One of our favorite things is seeing our books come to life in forms outside of the pages! That’s why we loved stumbling on @just_alexiz and her amazing nail art.

She specializes in bringing childhood characters and images to life on her nails. Here are some of our favorites:

Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein

Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff

Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson

Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White

Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak

Which ones are your favorites? 


Obsessions - Harold’s Purple Crayon

Remember this great series of children’s books by Crockett Johnson? It was all about a little kid who draws great adventures (and literally steps right into them) on his walls. To me, it represented the power of imagination and amusing oneself, but also the power of drawing, art, and perspective. It totally inspired me, and messed me up.
