Welcome to my world. Nomiie (know-me) is a world I created based on stories I have heard from many of my students and people I have had the pleasure of meeting which in many ways has change my life. As to the illustrations that I have created they tell the story of the many lives that has touched me.
I started this graphic novel in 2007 when a young lady told me her story about anorexia. Then it turned out to be a little more than a graphic novel but a collection of fan art and original work based on these individuals I have met through out my teaching career. The Nomiie's became the subject of ultra egos which illustrated their stories. Now the Nomiies represent a symbol of overcoming their lives and as they grow their stories and what they experience becomes a whole. That is what the Nomiie stitching on their faces represent. I am hoping to complete the graphic novel that I have been working on for 9 years and lunch it on it's 10 year anniversary in the fall of 2017.
