"The Fisher and the Jeweler"
A queer indigenous romance, set in a futuristic solarpunk fishing town. I worked really hard on this, and backgrounds are fairly challenging for me, but I had a lot of fun with the light. I was really inspired by the background art and colors of ‘She-Ra and the Princesses of Power” and “Steven Universe.” Working on this taught me that I have a lot of growing to do in my illustrations. I’m excited for young people to be able to our pure queer love story in a book, though.
