My Grandmas are Both Italian

I recently submitted my portfolio and several children’s book story proposals to a competition through the Boston Public Library, which is why I have been M.I.A for a month!

My story proposal images are for My Grandmas are Both Italian, a story of my Northern and Southern Italian Grandmothers.

It began with a sketch of Nonna Anita:

And then created these three sequential images:


Papa Joe, Nonna Anita, Nanny, me, and my pup Lady G!

All the images are collage with watercolor and handmade papers, approximately 12X18 in size.

Here’s to having my finger’s crossed! Let me know what you think.
