One Love By Cedella Marley


Hey Family,
I just stopped by to show you a new book that I had the
awesome honor of illustrating called "One Love".
Written and adapted by Bob Marley's own beautiful daughter,
Cedella Marley! Cedella is a mom and designer of her own
fashion line as well as an author of children's books. Oh
and the girl can sing too! The chip don't fall to far from the
tree he he he he! When the book comes out later this summer
I will share with you some of the artwork. Hope that you all
are doing well and getting ready for the summer. I'm still packing
y'all. Sending massive hugs and best wishes to all of you.
Later guys.

Yesterday my comment was erased by blogger. They went out an hour for maintance just when I posted it :/
Bob Marley would be proud to know his daughter is following the creative path he left behind.
I hope to see more about the book :)

Shell said...

Congrats on your new book project, Vanessa. You are just swimming in good work, lately.
Happy to see your post back to, I was coming to comment on Wednesday when I realized something was wrong with Blogger.
Have a great weekend.

Bella Sinclair said...

Dang right, I did it. Don't nobody mess with me and my number one position. I'll do it again!

WHAAAAAAAT? You and Ray and to do it all by yourselves???? GAAHHHH! That's not right. Not right at all. Don't they know your hands are insured for, like, a billion dollars? Awww, honey, I wish I were there to help. :(

I did not get an email about a little blue pill but I think I need one! I need uncontrollable hair growth and some dirty dancin'.

XOXOXO
