Inspired by Amy

I wanted to give a shout-out to Amy Burvall.  She is easily one of the most creative educators I know… and I’ve never even met her (yet).  She can’t seem to help it; creativity oozes from her in multiple forms:  Instagram images, blog posts, artwork created on Paper by 53, YouTube videos… the list is endless, thank God.

Her digital sketches influenced some of my own work, most notably this image, which was created in response to the Orlando massacre:


Amy has used the symbol of a tear drop to create a number of beautiful artworks:



So, I guess I just wanted to make sure to give credit where credit was due.  Austin Kleon encourages us to steal like an artist, and I love appropriation, but I also love respecting the original thoughts & creations of artists. Thanks Amy 🙂
