It’s really hard when you lose great artists. Or when you lose people who represent your childhood. Even though you never would have met them, and there’s no way they could know that they had an influence on your life, it’s still painful to lose them.
I was so sorry to lose both David Bowie and Alan Rickman so close together. So I did a little calligraphy–my tiny way to honor them.
I will miss Alan Rickman in all the great roles that I loved him so much in, like Colonel Brandon in Sense and Sensibility. But I will especially miss the person who embodied Severus Snape and made him come to life off of the page.
(If you’re interested in having any of these pieces or one like them, you can find them here on my Etsy shop).
