books, Live Your Story

Live Your Story

I wrote this poem as a poster. I went through so many colors. My favorite was a much lighter shade of blue.

Somehow I envisioned it on a wall someplace. I recall an artist who travels the world painting his words and drawings. With each stroke he gives life to old buildings.

When asked why he does it, he says to bring color and smiles to otherwise overlooked villages. Not exactly these words but something like this.

I want my work to mean the same. To make people smile. To make people feel good. Like a song that plays on in your mind, days after you’ve listened to it.

And so, I continue to work on my live your story poem. Yeah, I can use this poem to practice hand lettering and get comfortable with my lettering style.

 

AND now of course I want to create a book.

perhaps a new layout for the poem?

A LOve Story

Yeah in the words of what I just read a while ago, a REAL love story is imperfect, incomplete and oh there will be tears. This is a poem I’ve been holding on to for a long LONG time……and I sat there working on it for hours-not all at once but I did.

LOVE POEM I finally got it just right. The words are just right!

lovestory  I PUT ON SOME MUSIC.  The song Life is Worth Living song. An unexpected love from an unexpected artist. The words of Oprah played next, just as doubt showed up–nonetheless. All I knew was the time is now. What do you know I WROTE IT and I love the way it is. I changed a few words BUT it’s a smile and it FEELS. The poem is ready but now I have this idea to create the poem in various colors too.

Can’t wait to add this in my threadless shop.

Imagine all the impossibilities that are possible.

SO excited for my book and all that’s to come. Here me, in the words of a school sign I read today, ROAR!!!
