"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, so I’ll work hard to improve before my next one! I’m excited for young people to be able to read our pure queer love story in a book, though.
