  • Comments Off on Sage’s Rage: honeybees are SWEET

i happened to catch the end of jimmy fallon one night. my eyes were glued to the tv because i couldn’t believe what i saw.   a double dutch crew!!  taking me back to days of my youth. i was terrible at it but as bad as i was i always felt so happy jumping rope.  

the amazing team of girls i saw that night are part of the HONEY bee’s, which stands for Helping Other’s Now, Empowering Yourself. the non-profit group was started just two years ago by jersey city natives Takeria Clark and Kimberly Price.  the group provides a fun space for girls to learn teamwork, confidence and creativity, plus some serious athletic skills.  

the girls in the group span ages 4-16 and are so good that even though they just started 2 years ago, they have already claimed the title as world champions in the international double dutch competition.  now that’s something to jump up and down about!!

  • Comments Off on Hot off the Press: #ZenPencils means a happy animated life

cartoons and animation are not just about silly jokes. it can be true ART with a lot to say. that’s why we love Zen Pencils and the inspiration these querky drawings bring us…this is one of our fav Zen Pencil quotes


we are so excited to learn that Zen Pencils is encouraging youth animators to follow where their doodling takes them by offering a free youth activity guide. 

***tips by the creator of Zen Pencils include:

Use color against black and white to highlight joy or positivity.

Lines and repeated images are used to show motion.

For example, draw lines around or behind a character/object to show movement. 


Find a quote that you feel applies to your own life and create a comic that tells a story of your fav quote. It could be a story from your life or a story that you make up. Don’t worry if you don’t have a lot of drawing experience…

For more great ideas to spark your comic dreams, you can download the Zen Pencils activity guide for free here

i’m leaving the TEDXTeen event totally on fire

it’s incredible how these young visionaries are making such a mark on the world at an early age

to those out there just plugging along with life, let their stories push you out of your comfort zone

don’t let age or circumstance stop you from pursuing SOMETHING that makes the world better
