This piece is based on Harold and the Purple Crayon, by Crockett Johnson.
From Christine: This children’s book is embedded in my memory. Looking back from my middle-aged artist self, I think of Harold like a God: a little baby-person grabs something to draw with and simply creates anything he needs in life.
What a perfect metaphor for inventing what we want in the world.
This simple, spare children’s book has stayed with me in its quiet magic.
