Wise Words from Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou Quote Rachel Jacobson lettering
Each time a woman stands up for herself, she stands up for all women.
— Maya Angelou

Since I spend a lot of time penning women's words, many that I admire, I thought I'd kick off a series of Words & Faces. April is Maya Angelou's birth month (April 4, 1928 to be exact), so before we slip into May, I wanted to honor this woman and her influential work. Early this morning, I poured a cup of tea and pulled out my calligraphy supplies to write out my quote of choice in brush lettering. 

I'd love to know, what women do you look up to? Who would you like to see featured?

April Mix Tape (#bosslady pick-me-ups)

Rachel Jacobson Digital Mix Tape Playlist

I'm kicking off the launch of my new website with a monthly playlist. I've been inspired by (and grateful for) others sharing playlists of their own—here's looking at you, Rachel LoewenThese are the songs that have been on repeat in my studio. At this rate, I'll be dying for something new days before May rolls around (because I fall into the #favoritesongsonrepeat camp). But, really, what better way to spread some love than in the form of a modern mix tape? So this digital mix tape is for you. Happy listening!
