My New Mantra

The Keep Calm and Carry On motivational poster was produced in 1939 during the beginning of World War II, and was a "last case scenario" to be used only should the Nazis succeed in invading Great Britain, in order to stiffen resolve. Two-and-a-half million copies were printed, although the poster was distributed only in limited numbers. The designer of the poster is not known.

Papaya! + Sabrina Ward Harrison = LOVE

I was so excited to find out this morning that Sabrina Ward Harrison (my favorite artist) will be joining Papaya! (my favorite Stationery Line) to release an exclusive line of gifts!
There will be about 30 items from Papaya dazzled with the enchanting designs by Sabrina! I am thrilled for all involved! Sabrina's authentic approach to life and art has encouraged people all over the world to come from a place of honest expression and what Sabrina likes to call...True Living. I'm still patiently waiting for a Sabrina Ward Harrison workshop in our area!!!!

Window # 2

Ready for the next round of NYC window design for the Girl Scouts of America! This poster is my inspiration for the window (not my artwork). They want to focus on the new Journey books coming out this summer. I just love the colors! I'm thinking about recreating this actual scene - corrugated trees, enlarge the animals on poster board, pink backdrop, dress one of the models in a Think Green shirt - what do ya think?
