I was thinking how cool it would be to illustrate a children's book. I really don't have that art style that editors want, so I guess I would have to write my own story. Here is how the book would look.

The Illustrated Journey Youth Project vol.3
Recently completed the book design for the third volume of The Illustrated Journey Youth Project. This is a program where I teach immigrant and refugee youth how to draw comics in order to tell their stories about their journey to Canada. The kids enjoyed the final book and it gives me immense pleasure to be part of it.

The Illustrated Journey Project
I recently updated the logo (top image) which I originally designed. The original was done three years ago and I felt that the project needed a brand image. This great program teaches refugee youth how to draw comics in order to tell their stories about immigrating to Canada. I not only did the logo, but I also teach the course.
