Two years ago, I started drawing a project for my son’s second birthday while I was deployed. With just a set of Crayola pencils, scrap paper, and a cell phone to capture the images, I created “Hug in the Wind,” a story about connection—no matter the distance.
It’s a special story for the family, mostly written and designed on air-plan and flight schedule margins.
I sent the final file home, and my wife printed and bound it for my son's birthday.
The original Hug in the Wind has a special place in my heart, and it sparked the idea for creating children's books. It is now available in paperback and hardcover with renewed illustrations!
