Mars on Life

Mars on Life is a picture book for adults, teens, and tweens. Yep.

Mars on Life was inspired, in part, by David Bowie’s question: “Is there life on Mars?” It names the “otherness” we all feel from time to time, and the ways that we search for meaning and joy. The odd creatures in the book began appearing in my sketchbooks in 2018, in the dark of winter. I don’t know why they showed up. But it turns out these peculiar little guys had something to tell me.

“A sweet little book with a huge heart and beautiful art”

– Brett Warnock, Editor and Publisher of Kitchen Table Magazine, and former Editor and Publisher of Top Shelf Productions.

“A lovely, poetic, and compassionate tale with appealing images.”
