for whatever we lose. ..

i'm inspired largely by the written word, and have, as of late, been creating some hand-lettered illustrations with my favorites. this one was influenced by the following e. e. cummings poem: 

maggie and milly and molly and may
went down to the beach (to play one day)

and maggie discovered a shell that sang

so sweetly she couldn’t remember her troubles, and

milly befriended a stranded star

whose rays five languid fingers were;

and molly was chased by a horrible thing

which raced sideways while blowing bubbles: and

may came home with a smooth round stone

as small as a world and as large as alone.

for whatever we lose(like a you or a me)

it’s always ourselves we find in the sea
- e. e. cummings

8"x10" prints are available in my etsy and cargoh shops! as always, message me if you'd like a print in an alternate size- i'll pull strings to make you smile.
