ARTIST THIS MORNING-My new book
This is Pooky that I created about a month ago, and I wrote a children book manuscript and now in search of an agent so that I can get this book published. Pooky is a little girl from Detroit that moved to Ann Arbor and she is in the 4th grade.
I think I am going to illustrate this book by hand drawing and coloring instead of by computer! I am excited about Pooky and what she represents. She represents children from all inner city slums that are overlooked! I want to tell a story of what it was like to live in the slums especially from a African American point of view and the lifestyle that these children live in but in an innocent perspective!
I hope this will be a fun book for all children to enjoy and get to know Pooky and where she is from. I especially hope this will inspire children in inner city environments. They will get to know how change in environments sometime forces a person to change and how being different has to be accepted.
Let me know what you think!
