Fall 2008 illustration for "On Asphalt Trails," written by poet, journalist and activist Laura Hershey about her experience as a paraplegic hiker interacting with animals, nature and other park visitors while navigating paths in National Parks.
A few years later, Hershey reached out to tell me that she was very pleased with this illustration-- that she found the drawing to be "beautiful and evocative." She asked me to design the cover for her poetry chapbook, "Spark Before Dark." As I was finishing the cover, it was my great sadness to receive an email from her partner that she tragically and unexpectedly passed away over the 2011 Thanksgiving weekend. I submitted my final artwork to her partner and she made sure that her chapbook was published, as that was the wish of Laura.
