Novels Inside

Special Edition Art Print

8x10, 5x7

100% of the proceeds for all prints sold help fight Lyme disease by supporting the beautiful life of Jess Engel.


Jess is the artist and owner of Exoskeletons. She is an avid expressionist who suffers from chronic Lyme disease on a daily basis, yet continues to leave beauty in her wake with her poetic words, artistry and inspiring strength. She is also one of my most kindred friends in all the world.

Looking for a tangible way to both celebrate and support her, I searched through the many sentence-strings I've collected from her writings over the years, and rediscovered these beautifully raw and meaningful words:

"Some people have entire

novels inside of them."


- Jess Engel, 2012

This special edition art print was hand-lettered in honor of my quietly brave and beautiful friend. 100% of the proceeds for all prints sold go directly to fund Jess' treatments. ​Every purchase is a treasured gift, and we are so grateful.
