While comparing class schedules on the first day of school with her friend Will, Elle is distracted by Nate, a new boy at school. But as a typical eighth grader, she lacks the confidence to talk to the object of her crush. To top it off, the memories of being teased as a Kindergartener, and the secret she’s been keeping since then, make her even more nervous as she starts the new school year.

    Nate’s parents’ recent divorce turns his life upside down. He’s got a new home, a new school, and a new friend. Plus, he’s trying to keep up with his school work while helping to take care of his younger brother. When he meets Elle, the shy boy doesn’t have the courage to tell her how he feels.

    Throughout the school year, the pair become friendly, despite a series of mishaps and misunderstandings. But their relationship stalls until Will intervenes. Will one of them finally take a chance on romance before the year is over?

Here is a piece I donated to Art Fusion 19464, a community art center in Pottstown, PA for a fundraiser in November. I have recently become involved in teaching classes at the center, including figure drawing and manga for teens. I will also be leading a couple of summer camp classes this year. It's a little late to be starting a new chapter in my life's story, but there it is.
