An afternoon at the Eric Carle Museum

Meeting Chris Van Allsburg at the Eric Carle Museum
I had to share the lovely afternoon that I spent with my daughter at The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. We drove out to hear Chris Van Allsburg speak (amazing) and then we attended the book signing to have him autograph a few of his books... so hard to choose, since I have quite the collection. :)
He was a dapper gentlemen, eloquent and composed with a bit of quirk that I just loved.
It is always inspiring to meet a true legend in the industry, and he is one that I have long admired. When you have such an encounter or are able to immerse yourself in an afternoon as delightful as this one, you would be hard-pressed not to feel recharged in your own creative journey.  Even more remarkable, that I had this experience and now the memories, of this magical afternoon alongside my daughter.
