A feature of the BIG magazine is the free artist print in every edition. For the First Flight edition we received a wonderful response to the work by Madeleine Stamer. For Treasure Maps edition we experimented with a co-authored print. I sent a written score for an ‘owl who swallowed a map with a cross for her heart’ to Lilly and she responded with the artwork below. I titled it “Cross My Heart (and hope to fly)” and Twyla, age 3 finally responded by collaging the treasure to create a new map.
