Among other things, this week I worked on a submission for a contest. There's still plenty of time to join in if you're interested, it's called the Grammar of Figures and it celebrates the work of a very popular italian author, Gianni Rodari. Details and rules of entry are here.
One of Rodari's books is titled "Fairytales on the phone". In the introduction he tells the story of Mr. Bianchi, a salesman often on the road and away from home, who calls his little daughter every night for a goodnight storytime. The flower pattern on the blanket is a rather lame excuse to play with Illustration Friday!
