Apropos to the storyline, I have been thoroughly enjoying the process of working with several talented people on this project; hailing from many corners of the world, each contribute their own special expertise to help the book come to fruition. While I truly appreciate everyone involved, there is one person that I would like to highlight here. Without him, my picture book would lack the illustrations that are breathing life and emotion into my story.
I have had the pleasure and privilege to work with my very talented illustrator, Rasel Rana. Rasel is the one responsible for making my thoughts look good! He lives in Bangladesh … just about literally half way across the world from my home in New York, but there is not a bit of distance in cohesion between my words and conception, and the way Rasel weaves and connects his visual narrative throughout my story. I am beyond grateful that our paths have crossed.
