i got a copy of a very sweet and funny graphic novel called at a crossroads, between a rock and my parent’s place, by kate t. williamson. i was a fan of her work from her previous book, a year in japan. her drawing style reminded me then of sian keegan, and still does.. some of my favorite pages in the book are the full-page illustrations without text. although the story is great too… you can read more about kate’s work and her books here. and here.
