Jackie Robinson, Sketchnote-Inspired Art

Jackie Robinson, a great baseball player, and civil rights activist. Here’s one of my favorite quotes from Robinson… “Life is not a spectator sport. If you’re going to spend your whole life in the grandstand just watching what goes on, in my opinion, you’re wasting your life.”

Black History Month, Sketchnote-Inspired Art

Did you know that February is Black History Month? (Not that we should only designate 1 month for remembrance but, schools tend to keep this observance.) So, I wanted to honor and celebrate the impact these amazing individuals had on our lives and feature them. People not only from years past – but, also today – making history now and a real difference in our world.

I’m beginning the month with Harriet Tubman. Talk about a woman who defied the odds. She was responsible for saving the lives of hundreds of slaves via the Underground Railroad. She was a true inspiration.
