My mom recently retired from many years of teaching elementary school. She collected hundreds of childrens’ books over the years, which she has now passed on to her grandchildren. Among the books we got was Ed Emberley’s “Great Thumbprint Drawing Book.” I came across it the other day and looked through it for the first time since maybe 3rd grade.
It seems to have been, for better or worse, a terribly strong subconscious influence on me.
