Sharing in French Illustrator Inès Longevial’s Process To see more of her art, follow @ineslongevial on Instagram. French illustrator Inès Longevial (@ineslongevial) honors her inspirations, fashion, patterns and cuts in every project. She also believes in the power of sharing her artistic process, often showing pieces that are incomplete or in their infancy. “It’s a way to expose my work,” says Inès, who lives in Paris. “It shows the common thread of my art — the link that operates between painting and drawing, forms and colors. Most of the time, I am not afraid to show my work unfinished, because I think people appreciate sincerity. It forces me to renew myself.”

Getting honest, staying open, with olympian allison schmitt learn more about how our community is sharing their mental health journeys and supporting one another. “life is a tough game, and we can’t get through it alone,” says olympic swimmer allison schmitt (@arschmitty). after her 17-year-old cousin died by suicide in may 2015, allison, now 26, decided to raise awareness and open up about her own struggles with depression. “we’re taught from a young age to persevere, and if we keep persevering, we’ll be stronger on the other side. that works in a classroom. it works on the field. it worked in the pool for me. but it’s much bigger than that. i first started getting help in january of 2015. i was at a swim meet two weeks after i had, i guess, dark feelings for the first time. at that swim meet, my teammate and friend michael phelps (@m_phelps00), who’s like a brother to me, noticed that i was not the same old bubbly schmitty i had always been. he said, ‘i see you’re going through something. you’re not your same self. if you want to talk, i’m #hereforyou — or i can get someone else to talk to you.’ for some reason, at that moment, coming from him, it really resonated with me. i broke down on the pool deck in front of everyone i know, and i admitted that i do need help. i want people to know it’s ok not to be ok. but it’s not ok to isolate. so please, ask for help. it’s ok to ask for help.”

Honoring Motherhood with the Foster Moms To see more photos of their family, follow @fostermoms on Instagram. Check out #MothersDay to see how our community is celebrating the holiday in the US. “We used to refer to our family as a pop-up family because that’s really what we were,” says @fostermoms, two lesbian moms who originally were emergency foster parents, taking care of children who needed unplanned, short-term care. After fostering “Tiny” and “Sweet,” two brothers who came to their home two years ago as an infant and a toddler, they decided to adopt them. “It is a privilege,” they say of raising their family. “It’s about being this person in the lives of these kiddos who gets to be a part of their process, to guide them and be a part of the wonder that unfolds — to be present for the challenges and work through the stuff that is going to come up.” And the moms are learning from their kids: “They’ve taught us to just slow down and pay attention, and to appreciate them for who they are, for where they come from.”
