Leilani Galindo Illustration Thesis Fall 2018

This project is meant to share stories from the forgotten territories of the US. Hawaii, Alaska, Mariana Islands, Samoa, Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands. Also to introduce indigenous cultures to an audience who may not be familiar. It is a portfolio of images that will form the bulk of my professional children’s book portfolio. Consisting of 6, 8×20 full colored images and 6 spots based on the stories chosen. Some stories included will be “The Creation of the Hawaiian Islands”, and “How Brother Rabbit Became Wise”, from Puerto Rico. The images were created to interest viewers into wanting to know more about the tales behind the pictures and as a result, want to know more about the cultures that created them. To help create new bonds between cultures that might have trouble relating to each other.
