Lars Book Club: The Artist’s Mother printable quote

mother's day quote on The House That Lars Built illustrated by Jordan Sondler Mother's Day quote illustrated by Jordan Sondler for The House That Lars Built

Hey-o! Just popping in to see how you’re doing with this month’s book club book, The Artist’s Mother. It’s more of a visual catalogue of pictures and paintings by some of the most iconic artists, but it goes into some details about their mothers.

From here on out we’ll be featuring a quote that you can print off for free (download here) from each Book Club in the middle of each month as illustrated by a guest illustrator. One of my favorite illustrators, Jordan Sondler, is kicking it off with this one:

“The eyes of a mother are the first mirror we encounter. A good mother provides a true reflection.”

We’ll be going over the book at the beginning of next month and introducing the book for June then as well.

Get The Artist’s Mother here.
