YAA Art Projects: This Is Shyness

By Noelle

Introducing the Wildgirl and Wolfboy of my imagination! That Queen of the Night quote was one of my favorites of the series and I thought it summed up Shyness perfectly.

I drew this in Adobe Illustrator and had so much fun making it.  Thanks to Leanne Hall for creating such a fascinating world in Shyness.

  2. Noelle, that's fantastic! You're right, TiS and QofN would make fantastic graphic novels and while I pictured WB and WG a little differently, I think you have captured the feel of the books perfectly!
