Happy Friday! You’ve made it to the weekend! Here are some (really random) TGIF! links to kick things off on the right foot.
A couple weekends ago, we discovered that ESPN’s 30 for 30 documentaries are streaming on Netflix. You can imagine how enthused a non-sports girl like myself was about watching any of these, but I seriously dug them. Sports fan or not, if you love stories, you’ll dig these documentaries. I really enjoyed “Of Miracles and Men” because I’ve heard the story of that Olympic team from my dad for years. We also watched “Bernie and Ernie” who got their start here at UT in the 70s.
While we’re on sports (seriously, I don’t know who I am anymore): Dick Butkus wants you to check out the NFL’s new Pinterest boards. Totally a real thing.

I was on a panel recently to talk about hand illustration in a digital world, a topic I should really riff on at another time.

One such artist that I saw this week is Molly Crabapple. She’s an NYC-based artist who has been doing some amazing mural work in a building in Turkey that houses the Zeitouna program. Zeitouna is a creative therapy and physical wellness program works with Syrian refugee children–amazing! Read more here.
