On this Mother’s Day, I am thinking about the most important women growing up in my own life, my Mother & Grandmother (who both passed away the same year, 2008), but left behind their greatest legacy to me: an incredible sense of humor! In honor of my Mom (above), I watched one of her favorite movies Yentil on her birthday this past April 10th. For this week, in order to honor her for Mother’s Day, I will take on another one of her Streisand favorites Funny Girl. I don’t know anything about the movie, but from a typography standpoint, I love the poster design!
It is because of these important women that in the face of tragedy or anxiety I can still be funny, witty, and throw on a 25¢ mustache to spruce up boring old laundry night. For this amazing gift ladies, I thank you, from the bottom of my ever-comedic heart. And in the words of my Grandmother, “make sure to always have a laugh.” Happy Mother’s Day!!! xo artsparrow
