A year ago, I wrote Mary Anne Radmacher to see if she would let me use her quote: “Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I’ll try again tomorrow.”
She explained that her quote is licensed, but that she would accept a trade of some sorts for the right to use it. I was thrilled, but it took me the rest of the year to figure out what I wanted to do. I wrote her recently, and we worked out the details.
Today, I started working on a polymer plate, but I am not too excited. I was trying to do two colors, but they didn’t work together. And the font for Courage? Yeah, it doesn’t work.
So, I’m going to redesign to see if I can come up with something else. I love the quote. It resonates with me in so many ways. But I want to do it justice.
