You're the meaning in my life, you're the inspiration

...Richard Scarry. Ok, maybe not "the meaning in my life". But certainly an inspiration that oddly enough, I hadn't realized until I stumbled upon one of his titles while searching for something on Amazon the other day.

I used to LOVE these books as a kid, poring over all of the details in the town. In the same way, I loved Where's Waldo, too. Not so much the actual searching for Waldo, but just reading the stories in the illustrations.

As I was scanning some of the pieces for Bea Rocks the Flock, I said to myself, "Hmm. Many of these pieces are very highly populated. That's odd." Not so odd anymore.

Richard Scarry was one of my faves, too! 1970s Mercer Mayer, Phillipe Fix and Jack Kent as well.

THanks for the fo-one-one about the sock puppet phenomenon. I had noooo idea...

Great to see your work in progress!! Lovely works!

Thanks, Alina!

I liked Mercer Mayer, too, but I was more of a Berenstain Bears fan than a Little Critter fan (what WAS he, exactly?)

I also loved Tomie dePaola. Nana Upstairs, Nana Downstairs? Get me my box of tissues!
