Lenny Letter: The Poetry Issue

Amber Tamblyn
Ariana Reines
I woke up this morning as I always do at 5:30AM with my baby in my arms after she woke initially at 4:50AM; and we dragged her into our bed hoping to steal a few more winks of sleep. Then my husband took her into the kitchen to start the morning while I lazily scrolled through my inbox to see if I missed anything important between midnight and now (worst habit). This morning something good was actually in there, the poetry issue of Lenny Letter. If you don’t know what Lenny is, it’s an amazingly cool newsletter founded by Jenni Konner and Lena Dunham. I was tasked with illustrating a portfolio to be paired with each poem in the issue. I chose to cull through each for poignant captions to letter and I illustrated a portfolio of women that conveyed the mood or tone of the caption. Check them out: Amber Tamblyn, Ariana Reines (in the newsletter), Diamond Sharp, Chelsea Martin, and Morgan Parker.
