Love and Inspiration


"Just don't give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don't think you can go wrong."  — Ella Fitzgerald

I found this quote on Oprah's e-newsletter and since then I have written it on all my journals and sketchbooks. A few years ago I designed a poster for a tribute to "the graphic designer"... which has a question mark and an exclamation mark on each eye of the face. I was looking at it the other day and saw that the question mark could become the heart and I thought of Ella's quote that I love very much. I tweaked the image a little and transformed into a "Tribute to Ella". :)
