I Find You, You Find Me
A shy 10-year old boy discovers a mansion in the woods and it's sole occupant, a ghost. While he learns the intricacies of friendship, and she come to terms with her death, the two learn that their newly formed bond may not last forever. I Find You, You Find Me asks what children can teach us about love and loss when they are powerfully at war with one another.
This 180 page story is currently in the process of being illustrated in full color with watercolor and gouache. I Find You, You Find Me will be published in spring 2021.
Sketches & Visual Development
Although I don't intend to animate Ryuu's story alone into an animated film, I have studied animation and used his character to test my skills. Hopefully, these will serve as reference if I Find You, You Find Me ever makes the screen.
Ryuu Hopping and Turning Head (Color Test)
Also found in my animation portfolio. Ryuu hops across some stones holding a map and turns his head toward right screen.
Note: This is a color test, not a finished color animation.
