Kat Millerick - Today Is Going to Be a Great Day! - Illustrated Inspiration

Mon, 22 Oct 2018 - Travel & inspiration

"We are the ones we have been waiting for," is today's message of inspiration from the bestselling illustrated calendar, Today Is Going to Be a Great Day


June Jordan quipped these strong words. If you don't know June Jordan, get to know her... she's pretty amazing.

June Jordan was born in 1936 in Harlem, New York, lived in Brooklyn, and attended Barnard College. She was a Caribbean-American poet, essayist, teacher, and activist. June delved into issues of race, gender, representation, and immigration.

About Jordan, Toni Morrison said, "In political journalism that cuts like razors in essays that blast the darkness of confusion with relentless light; in poetry that looks as closely into lilac buds as into death's mouth... [Jordan] has comforted, explained, described, wrestled with, taught and made us laugh out loud before we wept...I am talking about a span of forty years of tireless activism coupled with and fueled by flawless art."

These words are brought to life by Kat Millerick's sharp, explosive lettering. Kat also designed the popular, inspirational books The Tiny Book of Tiny Pleasures and You Are Doing a Freaking Great Job.
