|The Delacorte Clock, Central Park, New York City|
Its dancing animals making music are a wonder to behold. It makes me feel like a kid again, standing in Germany, watching those old clocks turn in the squares of medieval towns. I've dedicated a series of drawings to these animals; in fact, they were much of the inspiration for my shop's theme (a whimsical menagerie). I'll be sharing them one by one. My favorite is the bear. If you look closely, you can see him; he's the right-most figure. He is joyous, lighthearted and delightful, and he makes me smile.
