Cover Illustration for the short fantasy story, “Why,” written by Maggie Allen for author Janine Spendlove and published by the creator-run Silence in the Library Publishing as part of a Kickstarter backer bonus. The story is a bittersweet character study that takes place in Spendlove’s “War of the Seasons” fantasy universe. I worked with both Maggie and Janine to make sure I captured the style and spirit of the characters and setting.
This animated video and accompanying comic book explained the fundamental concepts of infrared astronomy to be studied by the James Webb Space Telescope.
I was involved in nearly all aspects of this project, from collaborating on the initial script outlines and storyboards to animation to design of the printed comic book, which was distributed at outreach and education events.
