I would be so very happy if a set of these came to live at my house. My Pops has a walking stick that is painted in a similar style, though his is so old the paint has all but faded and the stick itself is broken in half. I loved it as a child, so of course I’m smitten with Cassandra’s antlers too. Via of Paper & Things and Seesaw.
I’m so terribly overdue posting about this book, which is a shame because it really is amazing. Born of Eric Smith’s struggle with cancer, it really is a manual in happiness. With artwork by some of the hottest illustrators of late, it’s cute but not saccharine, and just witty enough. It’s a great gift for anybody needing a pick-me-up. And since Chad’s work is included in the book we’re lucky enough to have a copy of our very own. Thank you, Eric! So glad you are still with us, doing all your great work.

+ I wrote a post on the Fox is Black about austism in the arts.
Happy weekend, friends! First full day off in about ten days, I’m exciiiited.
