Hey I came up with the cover artwork for this project about 2-3 years ago. This collaborative middle grade story was a joy to illustrate. Naru is one of the Bay Area's hip hop pioneers who I saw perform as a kid. He and his daughter wrote this story together and he is making it into a physical book. You want one?
