These are samples from a series of six graphic novellas written and illustrated by girls around the globe for the Grassroots Girls Book Club*. My responsibilities were to lay out the text in the title pages, front and back matter, speech bubbles, and sound effects. I also created the hand-drawn map underneath the introduction on the first page of each novella. To learn more about these novellas and to read them online, go to http://grassrootsgirls.tumblr.com.
*The Nike Foundation launched the Grassroots Girls Initiative in 2006 as the first donor consortium devoted exclusively to grassroots solutions for adolescent girls. Grassroots Girls Initiative members are: American Jewish World Service, Global Fund for Children, Global Fund for Women, EMpower—The Emerging Markets Foundation, Firelight Foundation and Mama Cash.
