Plain Jane and the Mermaid by Vera Brosgol

Today is the release date of Plain Jane and the Mermaid by Vera Brosgol published by FirstSecond Books. I colored this book! At 352 pages it is the longest graphic novel I have ever colored. I’m very proud of the work I did on this project and it was so fun collaborating with and learning from Vera. There were some extra pages in the back so FirstSecond included a two-page spread documenting the coloring process!

I received some early comp copies a few weeks ago and my two daughters have read this book dozens of times. I’m biased, but I think it’s a great book with an important message. I recommend picking it up at your local bookstore or comic shop, or checking it out from your local library!
