TRIBUTE TO ART BOY
Some kind person just dropped this off on my porch over the weekend. (I didn't get to the door quick enough to see who it was.)
It's the 2017-2018 Yearbook from Del Mar Elementary School, with a 2-page spread devoted to James— and the 5 murals he painted with the kids there over the years!
I especially love the handprint motif around the edges of the pages! It was James' idea to replace his trademark border of Runic glyphs with the students' handprints dipped in paint when he did school murals — a way to give every child who painted a creature on the mural a chance to "sign" his or her work.
I think it's so cool that the designer of the yearbook layout not only adopted this pattern, but put a negative-space heart in the center of each palm!
Thank you, Del Mar School, for this tribute to my Art Boy!
