ok literally who is this guy???? this kind of talent needs to be recognized and regarded far more than just this photoset. i need to find out who this person is bc it’s only fair to them to get some recognition.
A few years ago I had an idea for a story about a unicorn named Lily who lives in her own wonderful world and gets into trouble and tries her hardest to embrace joy and wonder where ever she goes. This year I was able to put that book into the world with my friends at @harpercollins and share it with kids all over. For the past six months I’ve been working on turning that book into a cartoon which is something I’ve never really done before. Likely it will be a while before this cartoon lives and breathes on it’s own but for me it all serves as am interesting reminder of the process of creation. Often the idea that starts things in motion is years, sometimes decades off from its final form, but if you can find ways to enjoy and embrace each step along the way you’ll be surprised by how much there is to learn and appreciate. I know I have been.
if you dont have me on facebook you are probably not missing out on any posts but the comment section is important too lmao
I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior. I had a real sword with me, too. I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion. Some woman walks by, with her little girl. The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight. But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.” You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?” And the girl looked around and saw me. I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood. So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?” And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating. Like she thinks I’m going to say no. So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her. And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.” I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.
