I finally got around to perusing my inbox and found a message about International Dot Day. I missed it by 11 minutes. Good thing it’s an “ish” kind of day and carries on into October.
For those of you who have missed out, The Dot is a children’s book written by Peter Reynolds. It is one of my favorite books, followed closely by another written by the same author entitled ish. Like most great children’s books they are worthy of adult reading also.
Sometimes when I get discouraged as an artist I sit and read them again and again. I’ve used them in all my children’s art classes and the grown-up ones too. Here’s the info. if you’re interested: http://www.thedotclub.org/dotday/
I think I sense a new art journal in the works!
