Wisdom gained through idiocy

Last month I went to a marvelous discussion about illustration with Oliver Jeffers and David MackIntosh.

It was a fascinating insight into the world of the two great illustrators and artists.  I made a fool of myself by giving them both of one of my cards as an immediate thank you for their words of inspiration and got them both to sign a Roger Duvoisin book’The Happy Lion‘ instead of one of their own.

Thank you for being so gracious gentlemen.

I did also manage, in the question and answer session, to glean their 3 words of wisdom each.

Oliver’s were:  Be more curious.

David’s were:  Patience. Perseverance. Curiosity.
