In my world: Pipsqueak dreams

Maybe she’ll be an artist, illustrating beautiful books and winning Caldecott medals (although I worry about that artists don’t earn quite enough to provide for their aging traditionally minded Asian mothers….but that’s a separate thing altogether… :-P)…

Or maybe she’ll be a colorist with some big league animation studio or production company and be part of the team that churns out the coolest box office hits ever to hit the movie circuit.

Or maybe she will be an author, dreaming up captivating fantastical worlds filled with  exoticly named characters who spend their days in exciting and perilous landscapes and adventures! (do authors make more money than artists? :-P)

Ahh…how farfetched a mother’s daydreams can go over a stash of sheets coloured with pipsqueak markers….

Sometimes in the middle of cleaning the rooms, I discover little gems left behind by the children. This Friday series was started with the intention of celebrating the imagination and creativity in a young child’s world…and hoping that it’ll bring a little ray of inspiration and joy to your day, as it does mine.
