It’s been a tricky couple of months of daily facepalm moments reading the news while being so far, far away living in France. I’ve coped in my own ways. Hallelujah, Amy’s Macaroni & Cheese can now be found at the French frozen food emporium, Picard. Dressed up with some grated gruyere and baguette breadcrumbs, it was an instant taste of simpler times. I’ve also found a real sense of urgency in my work. I’m not really sure what a Trump au chocolat means, but absurd times call for absurd measures. I also attended my first political protests, using my god-given high ringing voice that will even inspire a French bulldog to stand up in solidarity. Meticulously painting large-scale protest signs has been no different. I have re imagined some of my favorite signs into downloadable coloring page posters which can be carried as-is or colored in. You can find them in my new Etsy shop. My thinking is whatever helps others to be a little more creative or a little bit more engaged, is the grated gruyere and baguette breadcrumbs to make this new reality a little bit more palatable. See you in the streets!
