Maui Magazine Spread



Remember I told you guys one of my illustrations was going to be on a magazine? Well, the magazine arrived hot from the oven in my mail box today.

As I fumbled through the pages to find that one little image of my illustration of the Hawaiian Mo'o, I encounter this:



I full spread of my Mo'o (named Oscar)!!!!!

It is amazing that I sketched the little guy above while vacationing in Maui, this piece of paradise on Earth. The islands are rich in legend, folklore, culture and History.

I guess I am just very excited to be a part of it.

You should be excited and proud and very happy. Fab painting. The story looks very fascinating too. I lived in Hawaii for four years with my husband (we were married there too). The spiritual energy is amazing, and there is much deep history of mystical happenings there.

It's a wonderful illustration! How exciting to see your work published so prominently! We love Maui and go once every 5 years on holiday. I must check out that magazine!

WoW! Congratulations! A great piece of artwork with what appears to be a very intriguing story.

p.s. The post you left a comment on about 'the first book' was an OOPS! Kitty walked across the keyboard while I was working on some drafts for the future.

First of all , Congratulations Ana for making it ! It is indeed a great feeling to see one's own creation being featured in a publication ! This feeling cannot be expressed in words and gives enormous encouragement to the artist to go on.
I am also glad to know the story behind the painting.
All the best !
