Guess what? I’m in an anthology! I am proud to say I am one of 8 artists who participated in an anthology project titled: “If Money Could Shout: The Brutal Truth For Teens”. The stories were written by Paul Nourigat, who is looking to comics as a fun and relevant way to communicate to teens about finances. Check out the press release!
“Consultant and author Paul Nourigat has released a breakthrough graphic novel about personal finance for teens and young adults. This eight story anthology completes a circle he began over a year ago, as he produced six books oriented to younger readers. IF MONEY COULD SHOUT blends messaging about the financial facts of life throughout each of its eight fictional stories, along with extensive imagery to connect teens with poorly understood financial topics.
Says Nourigat …”The teen audience is very discerning and required great attention to the balance of images and text. I’m really pleased with the creative power in this book and the 400+ original illustrations, engaging readers in fundamental but mature financial messaging and stories. My objective is to empower young people with facts and perspectives on key financial topics, so they may enjoy greater success in our increasingly competitive world. As youth step into adulthood, they deserve greater financial insights than traditionally available.”
Attached is a digital peek into this innovative new book, including the first page of each of the eight stories, showcasing the marvelous and diverse illustrations produced by eight talented artists from across America.
A publisher-direct “support your school” program will be offered to individuals and companies who would like to purchase a block of discounted books as a gift for a favorite school or community organization (20 or more books).”
Here’s a page from my story, “The Graduate”. The lettering was done after I submitted my art, so if you want to read it, buy the book!;)
