I’ve got a great book.
Would you like it?
Not only do I have here a great hardcover book that I recently fell head over heels for, but it begins with this magical first line:
One of my favorite parts about this particular book is that it contains a hint of magic. Just enough to bring a little extra vividness to a beautiful family story without delving too far into the fantastical. Now, just look at that piece done by the talented Mr Tookles. Doesn’t it capture the feeling perfectly!?!
Do you know Mr Tookles? Well, actually Mr. Tookles is a green robot bank owned by the woman behind this magical painting, a 33 year old Dutch-Surinamese-Indian woman who says it’ll be alright if we call her Madhawi today. (Pronounced as ma-the-we.)
Contest will be open through June 28th.
Winner will have the honor of receiving a quality print of Madhawi’s artwork in the mail as well as the book.
Artists of all kinds (Yes, you photographers and you who says you can’t draw and you who just wants to practice hand lettering and you who is selling paintings online and…all of you!) if you are interested in providing a small piece of work that includes a first sentence I would love to hear from you!
Authors, have I read your book and tagged it as a recommended read? Would you like to donate a hard copy? Let me know!
