I’m happy to share this recently commissioned portrait of Miss. Esther Earl!
It was a pleasure working with her parents on this special gift for John Green, and I’m honored to help keep her star burning! :)
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Esther’s story, as well as being an exceptional young lady in her own right, she was also a huge inspiration for John Green’sThe Fault in out Stars.
If you are interested, please check out the “This Star Wont Go Out Foundation”, a non-profit foundation headed my Esther’s parents, Lori and Wayne. They continue to serve families with children diagnosed with life-threatening cancer in Esther’s honor. There you can read more about her life and legacy!
“There are infinite numbers between 0 and 1. There’s 1 and 12 and 112, and an infinite collection of others. Of course, there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and a million. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities. A writer we used to like taught us that. There are days, many of them, when I resent the size of my unbounded set. I want more numbers than I’m likely to get, and God, I want more numbers for Augustus Waters than he got. But, Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I’m grateful.”
