Exciting news here! I’ve been awarded an Artist Initiative grant from the MN State Arts Board to complete a graphic novel based on my great aunt’s journal from 1921. She was 19 years old when she wrote it and an entrepreneur who fully participated in the free spirit of the era. It’s also dark and sad. This is probably my most ambitious project to date and I’m so happy to have this backing and support. ️

I’ll be posting work in progress on my Instagram @rebeccasilus and you can also see this project on its project page, which will continue to be updated.
