Blog / 2020 / Being Inspired Instead of Jealous
January 9, 2020
There’s more about how to redirect jealousy in this vlog. Please remember that it can be exhausting to inspire people who never thank you. Publicly giving credit to the artists you love is good for all of art-kind!

Here’s what I’ve been reading since my last alphabet book update:
The Summer of Jordi Perez by Amy Spalding
This sweet YA novel gives me hope that upcoming generations will not be as uptight or repressed as the current crop of adults. The book also includes an interesting plot line about portraiture and appropriation.
Know My Name by Chanel Miller
This memoir is about reclaiming personhood when you have been assaulted, and it is really good. I talk about the book more here.
