Some of my favorite illustrated, creative books


There are a few books on my shelf that I always turn to when I need a little spark of inspiration. Here are three that I’ve had forever but always seem to do the trick.

“Each of us wants to connect more closely with the people in our lives. We want to know that we belong and are loved, and we want to make others feel the same way, too.”

“I want ot help you re-engage with your life and your dream. I want to show you that it is possible. That you can do it. That you can draw, and write, and sing, and live more richly and find and be the real you… It has nothing to do with what you’ve done the past or what people tell you that you can do or with how you make a living or where you live or any of that.”

“Remember building the best fort ever? And then how the dog charged through the living room and across the pillows and how the blanket slid out from the stack of books holding it down and how the whole thing fell apart, but also how this broken down mess was what got you outside…how you found yourself starting again, building something altogether new.”

Do you have any favorites I should check out? I’d love to hear.
