A few highlights from my visit to the New York Public Library’s exhibit on children’s books. I thought I was just going to see the Winnie the Pooh toys, but there was a lot more. Needless to say, I was in heaven.
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.
