My illustration for Sarah Lawrence College magazine alongside a short story by Joan Silber. It's about a girl who walks a fine line between respecting her parents' anti-war ideals and understanding her friends' struggles during World War II.

“It’s okay to have two opinions,” her mother warns, “if all you have to do is have an opinion.” Thanks to my AD Hannah Fichandler!

The girl snuck back by the house and as she tended to her swelling bites a little tabby cat came up from the cellar. The girl gave it some food she’d stolen from home. To her surprise it thanked her and told her how she could escape her aunt...

This is the tale of a young fiddler who wandered
from his path into the depths of a wild wood. While playing his instrument she
stumbled upon a coiled snake that threatened him. Fearing to startle it
further, he began to serenade the creature as he retraced his steps backwards.

Hey! So, finally, here's the first story of my thesis. It's a little book of a few stories inspired by myths and folktales from around the world brought together to fit Southern themes. They're simple, written the way I heard similar stories and songs growing up in North Carolina.
This particular story is based on the Japanese folktale Urashima Taro
