reflection

I wanted to thank all of you so much for writing in with your feedback to my last post. I feel so loved and supported... thank you! After listening to all of your thoughts, and many more of my own, I think I am just going to take one month off of blogging, internet reading, and being "out there". Soak in some reflection time and refresh my senses. Tomorrow I am starting a five-week healing course in yoga and this little break lines up perfectly with that. (Another sign from the universe, I think.)

Before my month off, I wanted to share one last thing with you: The new Emily Dickinson poster that I designed and illustrated for the Emily Dickinson Museum in Amherst, Massachusetts.

(18x24 poster, available for purchase for only $15 here.)

This is the museum's spring poster... and I wanted to capture the season and more of Emily's world. Her poetry is a reflection of her, which I captured quite literally with her reflection in the water. I also thought that showing her upside down would be a good way to get people to reflect a little more on the image, giving just a small pause before the brain recognizes what it's looking at.

And it's the pause I want now for myself... I think this piece lines up perfectly with my little sabbatical to think, reflect and have a media detox.

Things seem to start lining up when you're heading in the right direction...

See you in a month!
