10 Inspiring Illustrated Quotes for the Weekend

by Grace Bonney

I’m in the midst of a big new project (a spinoff of our latest book, In the Company of Women) and I could use a little pick-me-up right now. Sometimes when deadlines are looming and every day feels like a new hurdle to jump, the right bit of inspiration can get you through a tough spot. I follow a number of artists and makers on Instagram who specialize in turning inspiring words into beautifully illustrated or decorated pieces, and today I’m sharing 10 of my favorite for anyone who could use a little lift. Here’s to getting through that next challenge! –Grace

  • thank you, as always, for sending out hope and messages to keep trying. beautiful. helps more than words can express

  • You posted the “think about what could go right” picture on Instagram awhile ago and it was perfect timing. My girlfriend and I were scrambling to make some big life decisions and I saw it and sent it to her. We repeated it to each other for months. It really helped. And the “every level of your life requires a new version of you” feels very fitting right now. I keep repeating it to myself. Words help. As do your reposts on IG. :) Thank you!
