50watts:

Leo Dillon, scanned from an old Japanese catalog (circa 80s), which unfortunately listed his name as Leor Dillox (I kid you not). There’s a blog dedicated to Leo and Diane Dillon.

When I was a kid (a long, long, long time ago *sigh*) my mom got me a subscription to a children’s magazine called Cricket. This illustration was the cover of one of the issues, and I remember it to this day because it absolutely enchanted me. It was stored in my brain archives, and when I happened upon it via tumblr a lightbulb went off and I remembered it immediately. Looking at it I remember sitting at the top of the stairs under the window where there was a built in bookshelf that stored my favorite books and magazines. I’d sit in the sunlight and read and look at art. I’d grab a pillow and wedge myself into the stairs and read for hours. Perfect, huh?
