The Dewgazer & The Dewdrop Fairy



It was in 2000 that I made this book for my girlfriend. The Dewgazer & The Dewdrop Fairy.

It's basically a story about how we both met composed in fairy tale fit. Divided into 7 chapters, the book was originally written as a short poem, but due to my mind's constant bothering my goodnight sleep to add more spice, sugar and a bit of colored flavoring into it. And Boy, it went on like that for a couple of nights until the short verse transformed into a 175 line Children's Ballade.

Handmade and book bound, artworks in each page were done in watercolor and ink including the written poem. I gave the finish book to my girlfriend's birthday on April of 2001.

And in 2004 I was reading The Dewgazer & The Dewdrop Fairy as a bedtime story to our beautiful daughter.

Happy Birthday, Mr. Henson

I am 38 years old now and I proudly admit that I am one of the countless number of humans who had been thought how to sing, read, write and be creative by all kinds of friendly monsters.

I remember singing "G" with George and Grover under a tree.

I remember laughing when Bert was so annoyed while Ernie was counting firetrucks when counting sheeps to fall asleep won't work.

I remember when I was around 7 years old, I made my own sock puppet, hid behind the sofa and let my own monster sang.

September 24 is Jim Henson's birthday. And I thank him for crafting me into what I am today.

Sigh.


This is my daughter singing "Rainbow Connection"
