Welcome to the official blog of the upcoming children’s picture book, J is for Justify. This adventure was inspired by Justify as he magnificently broke the Curse of Apollo in the 2018 Kentucky Derby, emerged from the fog to take the Preakness, earned the 13th Triple Crown with his Belmont victory, paraded for fans at Churchill Downs afterwards and was named 2018 Horse of the Year. It became an obvious way for me to combine my love of art, design, horses and creating something special for my son, who 12 months after the Belmont, still runs around the house screaming, “JUSTIFY’S UNSTOPPABLE!” at the top of his lungs.

Stay tuned,
