I am super excited to share that I have signed with First Second (Macmillan) for my debut graphic novel, Pashmina.
This is the big project that made me pull back from daily drawings and I am happy to finally be able to share the news! I’ve been writing (and re-writing, mostly) the book for about a year and will be working on the drawings for the next two years. Thus far it has been one of the hardest things I’ve done in my career and I’m nowhere near finished! The above drawing is one that I used in my initial pitch to publishers. It isn’t final art and won’t appear in the book but I believe it captures my feelings and the essence of the story.
(The official announcement was in Publisher’s Weekly)
