Laura Lee Gulledge is a fantastic graphic novelist. Her debut graphic novel, Page by Paige, is my absolute favorite graphic novel, so I can’t wait to read her sophomore release, Will & Whit. I also found a cool video she created that demonstrates her artwork process. Will & Whit released on May 7th, 2013.
Summary (From Goodreads):
Wilhelmina “Will” Huxstep is a creative soul struggling to come to terms with a family tragedy. She crafts whimsical lamps, in part to deal with her fear of the dark. As she wraps up another summer in her mountain town, she longs for unplugged adventures with her fellow creative friends, Autumn, Noel, and Reese. Little does she know that she will get her wish in the form of an arts carnival and a blackout, courtesy of a hurricane named Whitney, which forces Will to face her fear of darkness.
Laura Lee Gulledge’s signature visual metaphors will be on full display in this all-new graphic novel, a moving look at shedding light on the dark corners of life.
