100 Days in Cleveland

A few weeks ago I was thrilled to receive Julia Kuo’s email. She explained to me how she was setting out for the ultimate self challenge…to draw, sketch or paint something she likes about Cleveland for the next 100 Days. I had to check it out.

Can I tell you how giddy I was when I saw her work? Stunning. The beauty in the every day details. The sunshine and shadows. The special nuances about a building, an outdoor space, a nook. She truly is such a gem to our city and one talented force to be reckoned with.

Julia, congratulations, this is going to be an amazing project for you and for our city. I can’t wait to check in from time to time on your progress. Good luck!

(I chose to share her illustrations of Root Cafe & Blackbird Bakery, because they are two of MY most frequented places in town!)
