In our Shooting Marbles journal, we feature classical characters from children’s literature drawn by artist Tim Bowers. His work is notable for its humor, craftsmanship and deep respect for story. One is never too old or too young to enjoy playtime and the company of legendary characters.
Playful and sweet-natured, Tim Bowers’ Merrymakers images illustrate one of the best things about childhood – the times when one can forget about everything while engrossed in a game or other fun activity. The charming characters featured on our Shooting Marbles cover remind us to look for good humor and cheer the company of good friends. And the message we want to dispatch with our Merrymakers series of covers is that wholehearted play is not age-restricted – so go on and have some fun!
