When I was little, my grandmother got me a subscription to Highlights magazine. At some point, she switched from Highlights and got me a subscription to Cricket magazine, which I loved. I still have some of my favorite issues in a box in my studio, which I look at from time to time.
So many years later, I find myself seeking out issues of Highlights magazine from the 50s & 60s. Not because of the articles (ha!), but because of a section in the middle of the magazine called "Our Own Pages". This section of the magazine features drawings and writing from kids all over the country. Highlights would put a call out in every issue and kids could send in their entries with the hope of getting them printed in the magazine. I like these older issues because they are printed on newsprint and use very limited color. This section is usually simple black & white.
I recently scanned in a couple of these pages and compiled them onto an 11x17 sheet of paper, which I have hanging in my studio. I love them. Thought you might find them inspiring too.
