Does anyone remember Ed Emberley? I strongly believe that I would not be who and where i am (professionally) today without Mr. Emberley. His books influenced me so much as a child growing up in good ol’ Garden Grove, CA. I still have my first Ed Emberley book my mom bought for me way back in 1976. (seen above) Well, that obviously was a long time ago, so it’s soo good to know that Ed Emberley is still around today- and still doing amazing things for children. His simplistic yet genius instructional books made drawing easy and approachable, but most of all, inspirational. And now, that clever japanese bag company Superplanning, have come out with an Ed Emberley collection of bags and accessories!! i don’t know if they’re available in the US yet- but how great are they?! who influenced you?
