Girls Unearth a Good Book
I believe this may have been the very first image I create for the purpose of encouraging children to read with a fantasy picture. The girls have unearthed a book and it takes them away. I love playing with images in Photoshop. It’s a thrill to find out what else I can make the program do for me to create art.
More than that, I have a love of books and it really distresses me when children exclaim they don’t like reading. What a world of wonder they are missing out on. I feel sure they would love reading if they got past the aversion to the small amount of work involved. You have to get to the place where the words are not just words, but become pictures, moving, growing, thinking, having an adventure.
