Stellar Eve

Have I shared this yet? I think I did when I first was tapped on the shoulder by Marlo Thomas and Carol Hart to help design the 35th Anniversary edition of the classic "Free to Be You and Me." Well, here I sit staring at the finished book in my studio - proud of having helped bring this influential book back to life for the next generations. As I typed this, Barack Obama was just named president-elect! I can't help but feel that the stars are aligning. This book is about being able to dream and become who we are meant to be. On the cover, the lead boy is perhaps young Barack?

Congratulations on making the best seller list!!!
I remember reading this in grade school. It provided me with confidence that stuck with me through all of those difficult developmental years.
I am glad to see it renewed for new generations and with your fantastic artwork.
