inspiration monday

Today's inspiration is Shel Silverstein. He always gets it spot on, his illustrations are just detailed enough to tell the story with out feeling fussy or over done. I grew up with his children's books and a little while ago I discovered some of his more adult material. Which is full of truth, and humor, and heartbreak. It's not just the technical aspects of his work I admire, I am also very inspired by the scope of his creative expression. From music, to theater, to children's books, to playboy he's done it all with cleverness and integrity. And with that, I bow my head to you, Mr. Shel Silverstein.

  1. Got Different Dances for my bday and people LOVE to steal it from me. It's oddly fascinating to people for some reason. You two have very similiar styles as well.
