So - how did I find myself spending 100 days with Jerusha Abbott?
A new illustration contract motivated me to join a 100 days project on instagram, I thought it was a fun way to practice and expand my children’s books portfolio. As my subject I chose the book Daddy Long-Legs by Jean Webster and started my 100 days with Jerusha.
Every evening I drew one of her letters, every evening I found myself inspired by her humor and optimism. I got excited with her about all the new stuff she experienced.
“Dear Daddy, did you ever hear of Michael Angelo?!”
She reminded me to appreciate small daily moments we take for granted, in her fresh eyes they seemed special. She filled my heart with gratitude and joy!
