Super Luca And Your Real Superpower

Twinki-Winki Glorious Misfits small wall art print in version Luca.
Once upon a time, there was a goat with superhero tendencies named Luca. Well actually, she’s very much alive in my head, so I’ll keep talking about her in the present tense.

Luca can eat anything, head-butt anyone, and make the best stupid-faces. Brutally honest and loyal to a fault, spending time with Stinky, Fifi, Elio, and Otto is the most important thing in the world to her. She just can’t imagine life without her best friends.

When one night Otto disappears, Luca and the gang have to deal with feeling helpless. Luca’s whole world starts to unravel as she watches her friends drift apart. Flooded by doubts and insecurities, they begin behaving in ways that she doesn’t understand. When her friends start listening to the grown-ups around them instead of her, she decides she’s had enough. She strikes out on her own to get Otto back and set things right again. What Luca figures out in the process is that her real superpower is her love and that her happiness depends on how much Luca likes being Luca.

Your happiness depends on how much you like yourself.

“Super Luca’s Glorious Twinki-Winki Adventure” is the story behind my brand name.

Yep, while writing a book, I decided on the name for my brand. That’s the creative process at work, don’t ya know. There’s this pivotal moment when the kids in my story sing the “Twinki-Winki” song. And that’s when I realized that this “Twinki-Winki” moment was the whole point of my story. Yeah, that’s when the sparks went off.

Thinking you don’t deserve the good you desire is what keeps you from getting it.

I came to realize that the point of my story, my reason for making art, and my purpose here is one and the same. It’s nothing more and nothing less than to start a Twinki-Winki revolution. Ha!

You are somebody.

And only you know who that is. And only you can show the world who that is.

You can’t control what others think of you. You can only control what you think of yourself. And who you are is constantly evolving. It’s a good exercise to sit down and think about who you are and what you want.

Because you can’t like yourself if you don’t know yourself.

“Develop a relationship with yourself before any other selves. You are the key and door to you. Nobody else can rescue you if you don’t do it first. Don’t tell them how to love you, show them. And in the process fall in love with you.”
