Save Yourself

I was asked in an interview recently what inspires me. I gave an answer that I think goes well with this photo.

"Nothing inspires me like childish things. Tutus and tea parties. Porcelain dolls and Disney movies. The love of learning and exploring that we as adults lose along the way. Walking through a forest barefoot. Talking to yourself in a silly voice. Building forts during a thunderstorm. Battling dragons and monsters in your mind. Coming home, safe and sound, and turning your adventures into art."

dlemieux, Franco Marconi, and 955 other people added this photo to their favorites.

    Your quote hit home for me. I'm a children's poet and I'm inspired by the same things for the same reasons, though I have yet to state it so eloquently.

    Please check out some of my poems. I'd love to know I inspired a photograph :)

    Total "slay the jabbawokky" moment, really like your description, that's a great way to see things, and a great way to form concepts for your artwork.
