The Journey to MakeMake was inspired by my nephew Jack. He's passionate about the space and family. One day, he told me about MakeMake and other dwarf planets that orbit around Neptune. Having just read Out of a Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis, The Journey to MakeMake was born.
Written and illustrated by me, I took this project head on. It opened my eyes to what I could do artistically and conceptually. I was inspired to write a book that could relate to all. I wanted its overall message to be one of kindness and tolerance.
The world we live in is constantly evolving. My goal with this book was to express compassion. We are subjected to so much sadness, but through my passion and love for art, I wanted to subject my audience to something different.
Expressing my creativity has helped me understand who I am. I'm also able to use my platform to promote ideas and an appreciation for art.
It's 24 pages and I'm considering publishing it. Let me know what you think so far. Thank you for viewing!
