As a child, I loved our set of Golden Book Encyclopedias that Mom bought at the grocery store each week. Do ya'll remember these books? The covers were highly illustrated and the inside, had a lot of simple drawings. For a little kid who loved to draw, I spent a lot of time looking at and copying those pictures, constantly discovering new pictures and drawings.
For Souvenirs of My Childhood, I decided to copy two of my favorite covers and in the background I included drawings that I did when I was about 6 or 7 years old. Looking at these books now, I realize how simplistic and dated the content is, but I have to tell you, I still love those illustrated covers.
