When I first sat down to write UNTITLED, I was scared.
For days I stared at the blank page.
And then, in a fit of desperation, I scribbled the following words to myself near the edge of my journal:
Look at the blank pages before you with courage.
Now fill them with beauty.
Inspired by what would become the opening few lines of my book, Sean has transformed my lofty ideal into a beautiful, hand-lettered artifact.
Before I say anything more about our little collaboration, I have to admit I'm a serious fan of Sean's. In fact, we have his Smooth Sea Never Made a Skilled Sailor print hanging by our front door.
Not only is it a reminder to M and I that the waters won't always be calm, but we've found that the phrase has essentially become our go-to parenting paradigm (our work isn't to make the waters calm for Ruby, but to make Ruby a fantastic little sailor).
As you can plainly see, Sean's work is always special and today's new print is no exception.
Printed on 8" x 10," 110lb Lettra Pearl White paper and letterpressed with love by our friends at Mama’s Sauce, each limited-edition print has been hand-embossed with Sean's trademark ampersand, and personally signed.
