When we think of escape artists, we often think of Harry
Houdini submerged in a water tank and bound with chains he must
break before he runs out of oxygen and drowns. But there are other
kinds of escape artists, too - you included.
Each of us is capable of freeing ourself from the shackles
we wear. All we need to do to free our spirit is to live for a while
in the world of our imagination.
The excerpts that follow come from my new book, Doodles & Daydreams: Your Passport for Becoming An Escape Artist.
The examples below will show you how
great escape artists live their lives
imaginatively. Answering the My Turn
Now writing prompt after each example
will help you express some of the feelings
that may have been locked within you
and will spark your own creativity.
You can also find more doodling prompts from my other books, Pocket Doodles for Kids, Pocket Doodles for Young Artists, City Doodles New York and City Doodles Los Angeles.
