Among all sorts of things we’re trying (and failing) to do on time, we’re still working on the Working Girls, though slowly. Today we’ve reached letter E. There’s probably a metaphor somewhere there.
There is not a musician that would have a bigger impact on (one of) us than Bob Dylan and today he is celebrating his 80th birthday. Having recorded dozens of albums and hundreds of songs, influenced the history of music and poetry (yes) in more than one way, he will always be important to (one of) us mostly for the deeply personal moments his music and words have given (one of) us. And helped (one of) us survive school so much easier. X!
When I drew this rainbow for something else and our son spontaneously colored it, I knew we’d find a great use for it. Today we celebrate the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia. And it’s easy to speak in platitudes on this subject but they still are true so here: None of us are equal until all of us are equal. Have a lovely, colorful day, guys!
As a belated celebration of Labor Day (that we celebrated laboring, of course), here’s the next one in our series of Working Girls: D is for Dog Walker. This is such a fun project but it really has to take a backseat to all the actual work and so the progress is slow. But we’re doing it.
Happy Earth Day, Friends! Celebrate it by doing something good for the planet. Like planting a tree. Apparently there’s space for so many more.
Best (late) Easter wishes, everyone! May this time bring you a renewal of spirit.
This year we enlisted the help of our 5-year-old son J with the card. He used to show very little interest in drawing but just recently he’s started really coming into his own as an illustrator, without much insistence on our side. It’s like something opened up in him and now he graces us with these little gems and they seem to bring him as much joy as they bring us. There’s no way to imitate the freshness of children’s drawings, you can only admire them.
We’re falling behind stuff again but here’s the missing C from our Working Girls series ABC that we showed last time. The other letters are coming when we catch up on either work or sleep (we don’t hope for both). C is for Carpenter, of course.
And this is the logo of the series.
Happy International Women’s Day!
Hopefully, you’re celebrating it with some great women.
And we’re using it as an opportunity to share a small intro to our new self-commissioned illustration project titled “Working Girls.” Because women can do anything.
