We have finally done all we need to for me to be able to announce the artist for our The Wolfenoot Story book.
We had so many submissions, and it was really difficult to pick, but when I saw this young woman’s work and discovered she is only thirteen, I knew I had our artist.
Maria Roshto is a young artist hailing from Oregon. I loved the images her Mom sent us, but more than that, I loved the idea of giving an opportunity to a young artist to work with my young writer. Maria is working her heart out to get the illustrations done for the book under the guidance of The Patchwork Raven‘s designer Will Thompson. I really hope this is an extraordinary and positive experience for her.
She says: “I’ve been doing art since I could barely talk and I’m really excited for this project because I’m doing what I love for a career.”
Wolfenati, please embrace this bright young talent.
But here’s a little teaser from the work she is doing for the book already.
We are so excited to have Maria on board, and confident that with her we can produce a picture book that will be a delight for all celebrants of Wolfenoot everywhere. <3
