{Everyday Inspiration} an apple a day...

As I sit down to write a blog post on my Mac Book while listening to music through itunes, with my iphone in pocket, & Buzz Lightyear gazing at me from afar- I'm reminded of Steve Jobs's genius. While reading a number of articles last night about him, I found a quote that particularly resonated with me & felt it appropriate to post. After all, the klt:sketchbook is a place for me to document things that inspire & amaze me & he is the epitome of that. 

"You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life." 

- Steve Jobs {Stanford commencement speech, June 2005} 

Wow, Steve Jobs will sure be missed!

{Everyday Inspiration} Fantastic Foxes

We are a family that enjoys movies & books very much & Fantastic Mr. Fox is one of our favorites. Sayer has been asking for a bandit hat & quotes Ash often so we thought that maybe Sayer should be Ash for Halloween this year. But the Fantastic Mr. Fox didn't only inspire the Halloween costume, it inspired the newest klt:tee. 

I drew the fox image this last spring - right when we introduced Sayer to the movie. I was struck by everything, the characters, the palette of the movie.... all of it (I love the book too). When the fox tees came in last week, Chris & I started making the Ash bandit hat together. I thought it would be fun for a fox tee photo shoot. I think these foxy guys really played their parts well. I wonder what movie or book will inspire the next klt:works character. Any guesses? 

Hope you are having a wonderful week!
