Hello there! I saw in my email this morning that we had a new follower on our tumblr, and when I took a look, I saw some of the wonderful illustrations you've been working on! Would love to know more about the children's book you've been working on, and what if any support I can offer as a fellow Bay Area children's book writer! Sincerely, David

Hi David!

Thanks so much for the message, I’m so excited about you and Eliza’s project (Eliza and I were roommates in college). I recently saw a book dummy and I’m so impressed.

Yes, I am embarking on a similar adventure myself, it’s in its very beginning stages, but I am excited at the prospect of delving into it more in the coming months. It is also about the moon! My vision is to have it be very minimal word-wise, with much of the story being driven by the imagery.

Good luck with the Kickstarter, I’m sure we will meet in person one of these days.

Best,

Chamisa

writing and Illustrating a children’s book…

I resolved this year to write and illustrate a story. I have only an inkling of what that story might be, but as is always the case with me, I do have a sense of what it might look like. These illustrations are my first attempt at a stylistic example for this project. I showed them at a pop-up art show that I recently hosted, and I am showing them here to see what further feedback I can glean from the internet world. So please don’t be shy if you have comments!image
