INSPIRATION OF SISTER IT
This is a story about a brother and sister from Ohio who shared a dream of brighter tomorrows and adventurous lives to be lived fully, completely and originally their own. This is their story.
Julie and Greg were siblings coming of age when young dreams began to shed light during a time in the late 70's when most believed a Georgia peanut farmer could not be a leader with conviction and strength, while women were continuing the struggle to be recognized as equals. The 80's brought on tides of historical east and west cheers unifying hopeful crowds to shout, "tear down that wall" with a unified symbolism allowing those near and far to envision their own potential to take the open road toward democracy and personal freedoms.
Separated by only 18 months, Julie and Greg began to identify adulthood and hope for much more on the horizon with Julie adventuring a great discovery and love for France and her soon to be worldly husband. She just somehow knew her destiny was written for hers to discover while a younger brother desperately was hoping to find half the will, half the ambition and even just half the determination to somehow find his own hero's adventure. Julie Marie Jankowski was my sister, best friend, my mentor and my first employer commissioning me as a artist with my first official sign painting project. She was my first adventurer hero and business mentor and she just happened to be my sister. She was one of the reasons I was able to believe in the possibility of "what if" as an artist.
Through the late eighties and most of the 90's I shared directly and later observed in amazement from a far her grand spirit and unrelenting work ethic and continued to be inspired by a sister I called my very special own. She had that "IT" factor all sewn up and I was the benefactor loving and devouring the table scraps of the demonstrations of focus, determination, and fortitude which I could never doubt or tire of with the inspirational mentoring life force she bestowed upon me.
That first adventure as an artist? As it turns out my first mentor (my sister) Julie was doing her first college campus student marketing promotion and she asked her younger brother (me) the inspiring artist to offer her my hand with her first of many future marketing projects. She wanted me to create a rainbow colored hot air balloon with a basket able to carry anyone who dare to climb aboard to discover unchartered heights with their own hero's adventure, while emphasizing the importance of being a part of something larger than ourselves. I created that first poster for her and filled it with a rainbow balloon full of colors filled with hope and guided by lines of courage connected just right, and as I finished I gleaned with pride and bubbled with emotional confident truth. I was just 17.
I'm an Artist. That's who I am. I'm an Artist!
Julie was my hero from the day we first ran together throughout our daring teens until the day she left this earth floating away suddenly leaving not only that colorful balloon but a secure life basket of gifts which carry me still to this day. On my birthday January 22nd, 2012 My Sister, Julie Marie Peyrin-Jankowski passed away leaving her family and myself to recognize only later after the initial sorrow that there are no promises for tomorrow, but only colorful heartfelt today's which can bring light and a bit of wondrous potential to an open adventurous life of hope and sharing love along the way.
January 21st, 2017 The day women marched in unity around the world "SISTER IT" was born and has become my everlasting tribute to not just my first life mentor and sister Julie, but a tribute to all women in their pursuit to discover and live a life of a hero's true adventure filled with colorful unknown heights and uncharted adventure."
