Every year on September 15th-ish, there is a celebration of creativity and connectivity known as International Dot Day, based on the fabulous picture book by Peter H. Reynolds, THE DOT (see video of the book here) This year, over ONE and a QUARTER MILLION people, mainly children in schools across 82 nations, are participating in Dot Day. Many well-known authors and illustrators have also contributed Dots to the Celebri-dots website.
A week ago I spent a couple of hours trying desperately to create a dot from my picture book, SNOW GAMES, using Microsoft Word, as I do not have MS Publisher or Photoshop etc on my Mac. I became so frustrated at my technologically inept attempts to come up with a basic circular illustration, that I aborted all and went off to the kitchen to chill and cook supper for two dear friends. The kitchen has always been a place of creativity for me and it was there I had my dot brainwave!
This dot is dedicated to my friend, Anne, whom I love enough to indulge her culinary preferences! Feel free to sign up and join in the connectivity and creativity of this celebration.
