New in the shop:When my daughter was just recently arrived from China, scared and stunned and in need of major surgeries, two children in line at the grocery store saw her and, in a moment of pure goodwill, came over and gave her the balloons their parents had just bought them. The "balloon" sketches were inspired by that random act of kindness, which I will never forget.
8x10 prints made from my original graphite sketches.


  1. j'aime... just sent you a mail but it seems to be stucked in the middle of nowhere... would be nice if you could check...
    Bonne nuit!

  2. I remember that, I thought it was so sweet. The kindness of children is a beautiful thing to behold.

  3. Sweet pencil sketches. I love shops where they give children balloons or a loli-pop or a sticker.
    It sure made running errands or getting a shot a little bit more pleasant.
    I think I will have to think or some random acts of kindness
    See you in NY!

  4. What a sweet story - and love the charming illustrations to go along with it.
