The Superhero Manifesto

A Gift for You

Thank you for being part of this community and for reading all these years! Some of you are serious old timers and I love you for it. 😉 This downloadable PDF is my little gift to you. Feel free to print out this poster, tack it on the wall, or simply read it and get inspired.

Just click here to download the high res version.

I originally wrote this for my most recent photo course but it also encapsulates the way I like to live. Photography is turning into my favorite metaphor.

Choose a line that resonates for you and work with it this week.

Do you need to practice being brave? Or maybe telling your story?
Let me know which line you are working with in the comments below. I’ll be trading my fear for curiosity and seeing what happens.

Like most things, it’s more fun when we can do it together.

With love and gratitude!

P.S. Still spots available in the next session! Class starts Tuesday, April 10th. Register here!

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.



  1. Miss K

    Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Bodhi

    I LUV this. I too will begin working on trading my fear for curiosity. I just realized that fear has been running a large part of my life and that’s not how I want to live anymore.

  3. Sandra

    Thanks. I’ll work with moving my body. Always a challenge, and a great reward when I do.

  4. Gerri

    Thanks bunches!!

  5. Belle

    Oh, I just adore this! Good for photography. Great for life.

    Thank you so much!

  6. Beth

    Andrea – thank you so much1 This is a great manifesto -I see it each day to remember to fly – it hangs on my bulletin board – right net to my vision board! 🙂 hugs and love

  7. Hannah Marcotti

    Elevate the Ordinary. This is mine, oh so mine!!!

  8. Sherri

    I will also begin working on trading my fear for curiosity. Fear has held me back in so many ways. I need to step outside my comfort zone. Looking forward to it!

  9. Michelle DeSpain

    Andrea, you and Jen inspired me at WDS to embark on The Year of Play for 2012, and there it is in your manifesto! Yay!

    Oh – and 2011 was The Year of Living Curiously. Let me know if you need any hot tips for your personal curiosity challenge this week! 😀

    Saving this manifesto as my wallpaper at work. Thank you!

  10. Desiree

    Thank you for this lovely gift! Like you, I will be working on trading my fear for curiosity. It leapt out from the others, so I’m going with it.

  11. Christy

    I love this so much, Andrea! (and I think I qualify as an old-timer, reading your words and loving your photos and jewelry for at least 8 years or so…)

    I’m going to try being brave.

  12. Elissa

    Thank you for the beautiful poster – it’s already pinned on my inspiration board <3 I will be using it to challenge myself to 'Get Out Every Day' I spend too much time in my home office in front of a computer screen!

  13. Kimberley McGill

    Thanks! Illness has slowed me down and I think I will take the silver lining it offers : Notice the small things.

    I would LOVE to take your course, but am in the middle of a project. When will you be offering it again?

    Best to you!

  14. Jo

    Andrea! This is great. Are you still making jewelry as well?

  15. kim

    Love this!
    thank you!

  16. kjersten hayes

  17. pippin

    Thanks I needed this gift. I like make mistakes, which I will do this week. I stay in my safety zone, because I don’t want to make mistakes!
