today

I'm working on illustrations for a workbook for teen mothers. This is Jasmine, the main character of the narrative.
that's me
The workbook details Jasmine's experience coming to terms with being pregnant, accepting changes to her body, her life and learning to care for her newborn.
life is about to change
I feel lucky to work on a project of this sort.

You may feel lucky but I bet the folks in charge of getting the book together are counting their lucky stars to get you to illustrate for them.

Thanks for all your positive comments. Considering that these are only a small portion of the drawings I'm working on for the project, there are plenty more to come!

It IS an important project. Thank you for doing it. I was a teen mom. I was lucky to have a supportive mother and mother-in-law (yes, I was married on my 16th birthday), but in 1968, there was NOTHING for teen moms like this. Bless you.
