This exercise is from Austin Kleon's Steal Like An Artist journal. There were empty picture frames and I filled them up with four of my heroes.
Josephine Baker: multi-talented, multi-lingual, fiercely courageous, and magnificently curious
Jane Austen: fundamentally comic, historically significant, and phenomenal storyteller
Mary Magdalene: historically ambivalent, Apostle to the Apostles, and loyal companion
Hildegard von Bingen: hardly know what to say about her because the largeness of her life cannot be contained. For those of you who do not know her... she was a Benedictine abbess, writer, composer, philosopher, Christian mystic, visionary, and polymath. She is considered to be the founder of scientific natural history in Germany.
