Tuatara: A Graphic Poem (Revised)

Drawing and Di

This is a visual adaptation of a poem I wrote. It fuses images from Ecclesiastes with a fictional narrative of a near extinct creature found in New Zealand. I used Adobe Illustrator to digitally color hand-drawn images.


Here’s a sample page

I used what I learned making the digital illuminations for Eliot’s “Preludes” to update this project with some texture and variety. You can download the complete PDF for free here.
