Still life of things that inspire me in my studio. Heirloom apples from @unsqgreenmarket, a bowl from @fishseddynyc, a piece of driftwood from @farmaxwell, a beautiful piece of fabric by @atelier_to_nani_iro that I got for inspiration when working on a project with @hopegillerman, and the magnificent pink book Heroes: A Tribute by @doug__meyer. Thanks to all the @‘s for helping me stay inspired. .

Congrats @anne_wynter, can’t wait to follow along! Thank you  @dallasweekly! ・・・

Sun by @alisonoliverdesign | Sun is full of warmth and bright creative energy. A beautiful story about a sporty boy who gets in touch with his creative side with the help of a crafty fox. ️
Alison's illustrations are gorgeous. Pairing beautifully to the wonderful story that reminds us that there are many ways to be a boy. Artistic and sporty don't have to be mutually exclusive.

Thank you @bibliobebes! ・・・
it may be cold outside but we’re grateful for the sun shining down on us as we play outside & the neighborhood fox that has been visiting our street lately. also, this book has been read no fewer than once a day in the last week. a tale of friendship, brotherhood & love. oh, & soccer, which both my boys love! I love that they can see themselves in the books we read.

Still life .

Luna.

Este libro fue un amor a primera vista. Reconozco que lo compré por las ilustraciones, que son una maravilla. Pero es que la historia me ha cautivado.

La historia de Luna es muy parecida a la de cualquier niño: escuela, extraescolares, deberes... y vuelta a empezar. Luna se pregunta cómo debe ser sentirse libre. Una noche sale a observar las estrellas y conoce un lobo. Un lobo que volverá a conectarla con su lado salvaje. Con él redescubrirá el placer de jugar, de saltar, de gritar...y también de parar y escuchar, de sentir. 
Una historia maravillosa, con un mensaje muy importante para todos, pero sobretodo para los más pequeños: hay que jugar más, correr más, salir más, sentir más... Las ilustraciones son puro amor, maravillosas también.

1970, now 50 years ago, marked a major shift in Corita's work. The Heroes and Sheroes series from just one year prior stands in stark contrast to the introspective and uplifting messages of her work in the 1970s.

Now more than ever, it's "very" important to share your love with the world. Save and share this post to spread Corita's timeless message.

It’s Corita Day in LA! In honor of her birthday, November 20th has been designated Corita Kent Day. Her message of love, peace and tolerance is even more relevant today.
