  8. Picked up my copies Gabi: A Girl in Pieces, a book I designed & illustrated. It was a great honor to work with Cinco Puntos Press. I’m grateful for the opportunity of helping portraying this powerful story by Isabel Quintero, about a young Chicana trying to make sense of things. The back cover reads:”For all the gorditas, flaquitas, and in-between girls trying to make their space in the world. Don’t worry you got this.” #books #cincopuntos #elpaso
