From last night's cola pen spree. Experimenting with different metals & gauges.

Envelope liner outtake.

External, internal, all of it.

Listening to Becoming Wise by Krista Tippet and warming up... and pausing every 2 minutes to take notes because it is rich. 👌

Name the shit (🌈💩we've all got it! 💩🌈), get to know it and it has less power. Know your light, because that is powerful, too.
This is part of a piece I'm working on about authenticity, which leads me to vulnerability, which can start to feel like overused buzz words... but still hold so much power. The deeper I go along the creative path, the more there is to explore and the more pieces of myself I find along the way. Sometimes it is a bright, joyful journey, sometimes it is a foggy, heavy journey; more often it is a bit of everything, all at once. This isn't news, but it can be easy to forget, get discouraged, get lost, hide away and forget to breathe through the shit.
This was a foggy week, but I eventually remembered to breathe, then breathing was hard and now here we are. Being a human is crazy and beautiful; we're all crazy but at least we're in it together. 🦄

At my desk with the windows open to enjoy the smell of the approaching rainstorm and do some ✍️ in this moody light. Happy Friday!

Connections connections parallels connections new stuff old stuff life.

I've been playing with patterns for a series of envelope liners this week, and stumbled into this wild magic 🦄 Just a weird and wacky digital sketch but also the burst of new ideas, new possibilities to explore.
Did you have any discoveries or new curiosities that hit this week? Would love to hear about them -- or about what sparked them if they're top secret 🕯

Returning to abstracts, because it's been a while & I need them in my life 〰

Thinking about these words and the powerful voice of the 9 year old Syrian refugee who wrote them. I found it so moving, maybe you will too. 👉Link in profile👈 to her performing this poem, and read more poetry by writers from the Muslim Ban countries after the video.
At 9 years old, she's a powerful force for compassion, consideration of the other and equality. An inspiration to listen, take action, and not to let up.

Proud to be one strong voice in a sea of hundreds of thousands (edit, millions!) of strong voices marching across the world for equality and justice today.
