Awhile ago a group of kids in the library painted bookends for the TEEN ZONE which I finished up this weekend. Finally, the last touches and varnish and now they're ready for the library. It's been fabulous adding colour to the library with the kids who love to visit.
It's great to work in collaboration, I especially enjoy working in collaboration with kids. There is something so rewarding, quite magical about working with kids. They don't judge themselves so harshly as adults when they create, just go with the flow. They don't worry about outcome but rather enjoy the process. Their excitement is contagious as they are introduced to new methods and materials and their imagination is boundless.
I like the fact that the images are a variety of contemporary references such as books and television but also include patterns and colours. I absolutely love my job.
