The Eleventy Mascot is becoming a series! Our project has continued with its pseudo-regular refresh of the famed possum on a balloon and the latest in the series is from acclaimed designer, illustrator, and author Geri Coady!

I really like this iteration and the unique style Geri brought to the project—especially the addition of two littles, which to me is a lovely nod to how our community has grown!
