Carry On

                  This is how I felt this morning after receiving news that I didn't get a book project
I really really really wanted and had worked hard on for the last few months. I flipped open my
                  gratitude notebook and read this. Instead of writing I drew and somehow that little page   helped me move into what I know I need to do...continue. 

and then I read this-
which reminds me AGAIN to carry on doing what I love.

Inky Ink

One of my favorite drawing tools is this ink pen. Have them in every bag. I love to squish them and watch the ink bubble at the top and flow out. The only problem is that they run too quick.

3 inspirations

it's been awhile, too long since I've posted anything here. Especially inspirations. I wish I could say that I'm going to do this every week, once a week, for months and months and months. But I know that is not true. It happens when it happens.

1. Love Love Loved this book. Still Life with Tornado by A.S. King. I think she may be my new favorite YA writer. Besides the cover grabbing me, the voice of the main character pulled me in with her honest, funny, truly unique perspective. There are so many great lines and passages that flow like awesome beat poetry. check this book and writer out.

2. For years I have admired and been inspired by the artist Isidro Ferrer. He uses many materials working as artist, illustrator, designer, whatever you want to call it, he knows the way.
here is a video of him talking a little about his philosphy

3.Leonard Cohen's quote.  "There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in."

Enjoy the weekend!
