Peek-A-Boo! New Tee-iabo Design sneak peek...woo-hew!
As you can already tell I'm going back to my roots of the "bee" with this design. In all actuality the next few designs will involve my bee art. This design is inspired by a family member who lives this statement everyday. You'll have to wait patiently for a few days as I creatively make their idea along with my vision come to life. Stay tuned!
"We must work unceasingly to uplift this nation that we love to a higher destiny, to a higher plateau of compassion, to a more noble expression of humanness"
-Dr Martin Luther King
Each year on the third Monday of January, schools, federal offices, post office and banks across America close as we celebrate the birth, the life and the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It is a time for the nation to remember the injustices that Dr. King fought. A time to remember his fight for the freedom, equality, and dignity of all races and peoples. A time to remember the message of change through nonviolence. Just as the theme of this page states: "Remember, Celebrate, Act! A Day On, Not A Day Off!" Although many people see this, and other holidays as "a day without home work," or "a day to hang out with friends," it is much more than that; it is the celebration of equality, the celebration of freedom, and the celebration of a wonderful, wonderful man!
