Diversity-rich, character-driven, picture books – and I’m now working on a lower MG graphic novel.
I’ve lived in various locales, urban, suburban, semi-rural and rural settings.
I sense the different voices, tones, smells, sounds, pace and emotion of each.
It has also brought me to highly value nature.
Overall, I lean to wild lives & imaginative worlds where anything envisioned can become the future, where boundaries come down, hurts are healed, creativity is valued, hearts expand.
Here are just a few illustration sample scenes from some of my stories.
Wolf’s Lala – a lonely little wolf and a baby become sisters.
LEFT-BEHIND TIGER – Mina tries to reunite Tiger & Sumi.
(Poppy’s) WOODSY WILLOW
Poppy’s baby sister Moon-Nip originated for a PB, after various revisions & versions of story, she’s changing a bit – see the lineup – as part of Poppy’s MG/GN now.
These scenes in the tree and by the water will influence two scenes while go through more revisions for the WIP – WOODSY WILLOW.
I’ll repost images as able – without giving too much away here too soon!.
