Several years ago at the Thanksgiving table we started talking about names for our first child.
Pops brought up a bunch of different family names. Since our family is Cherokee (I’m 1/128 and a card carrying member of the tribe, great grandmother was full and lived near the reservation near Miami, OK) there are some great ones. One name in particular stuck with me: Billy Bible. I thought it fitting for this print that has six crosses. Crosses being the Native American symbol for stars, representing high ideals, that appear on the state flag behind the peace pipe and the olive branch. Printed up with blue, to represent devotion. Our child didn’t end up being called Bible when it was all said and done, but we still point her to those high ideals on which Billy and our people set their hope.
