Feels great to be rapping up this project commissioned by Kommode Verlag in Switzerland. Artist Laura Johnston came in to illustrate a series of elements on the walls of my home. Over the past weeks my two sons played the roles, as I borrowed generously from the living/working philosophy of artist Lauren Simonutti.
Turning over our finals in the week ahead to the publisher feels like turning in a novel...a novel with two endings. Love and gratitude to love of my life Lisa Mitchell who engaged with the fabric of this project from the very first chalk idea to the inspired casting curve ball she called for.
There really is nothing as satisfying as taking a chance on something uncharted and seeing it fly. And realizing you can't really fly on your own.
