In the past year or so I’ve received a handful of emails and messages requesting images from my gratitude project as custom prints or cards. I was always happy to oblige, and at some point realized that this was a great way for people to connect with my work in a way that felt personal. So I’ve added a “Request Custom Work” option on my etsy shop, and wanted to welcome you all to use it! It’s right here, under the “Shop Owner” tab on etsy.
see! that button right there!
You can find the complete catalog of images from the gratitude project here, and you can see all of the card images here. One customer recently ordered these three illustrations (which were all originally cards) to hang in her nursery:
Wings. Grateful for the cliff, the jump, the wings (over and over again). And Kurt Vonnegut (again). Update: Thanks to some impressive sleuthing from a fan of this project, it turns out that Ray Bradbury was the original source of this quote, saying, “You’ve got to jump off the cliff all the time and build your wings on the way down.” See the Quote Investigator for more details. As I am drawn to the particular word use of Kurt Vonnegut (and his choice to say “continually” which is actually a significant addition to the quote, in my opinion) I’m going to leave it as is.
