I received this tiny book for Christmas this year from a dear friend (and fellow Muppet lover!):
It’s a cute book featuring some of Jim Henson’s original art and funny/inspirational quotes alongside them by Jim Lewis. An employee of the Jim Henson Company for many years, Lewis was also the editor of the now defunct Muppet Magazine and has also “assisted” Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, and Pepe the King Prawn on their own books. He also helped write Muppets Tonight (a television show I loved!) and It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie from 2002. (Fun fact: Jim called Fozzie his hero in an interview with Muppet Musings. To Jim, Fozzie is “needy, trusting, sweet, with an obsessive-compulsive joke-reflex.”)
This is Jim. (source)
Here are a few of my favorite bits from Jim Henson’s Doodle Dreams:
I love how silly, creative, and trippy these drawings are.
And how perfectly inspirational the words are for a Monday morning.
Someone pass the coffee please!
Here’s wishing you all an inspired week!
