"Scaredy Cat is my first picture book, part of a series of short stories that I call Stories Without Words. Readers are given the freedom to create their own narratives and interpretations.
I began this project in late September 2012, starting with story development and character design. My deadline was October 31, allowing myself only one month to complete the 47 pages. I dedicated all my free time to Scaredy Cat and finished the entire book with a few days to spare.
On October 31, 2012, Scaredy Cat was featured on DeviantART as a Daily Deviation.”
