The artwork above is created by Michelle Robinson of Mister Michelle. She will be selling prints of the above artwork soon and I’ll be sure to share when she does. (Her instagram page is full of beautiful work as well -highly recommend following her.) I found Michelle and her art via Merritt’s post and was awe-struck. And oh how I wish this piece was still available as I’ve literally never seen something more perfect for my apartment. This week’s list is a list of things I found powerful, helpful, moving, or uplifting this week and I hope you’ll read /watch / listen tothem all. If you have a hankering to shop, check out this list of businesses to support. Or instead of shopping, donate.
