    One thought on “Jim Henson's Doodle Dreams: Inspiration for Living Life Outside the Lines”

    1. I came across this book because of a tattoo. I think that's a first for me. To make a long story short, a good friend of mine has one of Jim Henson's doodles tattooed on his arm, a doodle which I admired each time I saw said friend, until I finally asked where the doodle had come from. This led me to Jim Henson's Doodle Dreams. It's a short little book. A ten minute read maybe. But it has a beauty to it. Not only because of a little behind the scenes glance into Jim Henson's mind through his art [...]

    2. I like Jim Henson; he is one of those people who are so inspirational they touch almost every life. For me it was Sesame Street and the classic movie, Labyrinth, when I was sixteen. Pure magic. This book contain inspirational doodles and quotes, also magical. A lovely little book. The perfect sweet gift for graduates or for the holidays, this title encourages readers to express their own unique creativity and sense of humor.Go outside and look up at a tree. Better yet, look at one leaf. It's jus [...]

    3. This book is a combination of Jim Henson doodles and Jim Lewis writings. Henson is the creator of Sesame Street amongst other things and Lewis was one of the writers. The text is made of sayings like: "If you're open to them, great ideas are everywhere." Many would clearly call it a hippie book. I read it to my 8 year old last night who began by making fun of it but by about midway through started reading each page himself. For a kid who hates school I thought it important for him to hear messag [...]

    4. This was a Nice book: fun doodles from the sketchbooks of a master, with sensible wisdom on creativity and leadership. Call me cynical, but I got a creepy feeling that the man that was hired to incorporate all things Henson found just one more little way to line his pockets. Not that true artists shouldn't enjoy the riches of this world! I don't like feeling of being manipulated, which taints the essential message of this sweet little book.

    5. I originally bought this as part of a gift for someone, but never got the opportunity to give it. At the time, I thought about buying myself a copy as well, anyway, because it's a really neat book. The illustrations are colorful and interesting (hence, the children's shelf placement in my collection) and the quotes are thought-provoking, if not entirely new/original in terms of content. It's a good, fun, uplifting little read.

    6. An inspiring and quick read; this is the second time I have read this colorful and creative little book! Includes zany sketches, delightful doodles, words to dream by and of course — selected Muppets!"Every once in a while, stop and look around. It doesn't matter where you are; there's usually something right there in front of you that will surprise and inspire you." ~Jim Henson

    7. "Try to instigate silliness" & "Be interested in everything". That's what I take away from this great little book of Jim Henson's drawings and Jim Lewis' words. I stopped every other page to try to do the drawings

    8. Cute, quirky and seeing Jim Henson's uncensored art simultaneously tugs at the heartstrings and puts a smile on your face.

    9. A nice encapsulation of the points made in Cockerell's _Creating Magic_. It doesn't hurt that muppet drawings and sketches are included!

    10. Love this little book. Especially this quote, "If you worry too much about the way things are supposed to be, you're a lot more likely to end up following the crowd."
