AAHHH I finally finished this book for my senior thesis, now I can get back to other crating! I've only chosen to upload a few of the spreads and the cover, because uh. Well. There are a lot of them.

I wrote and illustrated the whole thing. All twenty-something spreads. The book is about a girl who has lost her father to cancer. The whole thing is written by the little girl in the form of a letter to her dad who has passed. If you want to read the whole thing, I have it up on my website: http://www.2eyed.com/imissyou.html.

That's a beautiful book. My aunt died of cancer many years ago, when my cousin her little girl was only 10. This is very true to what she went through. Thank you for sharing your experiences and your beautiful art work.
