The Mystic Phyles: Writing, Design & Illustration. One of my life’s passion projects was writing a children’s book that I co-illustrated with Ralph Masiello in 2011. The story was created around a semi-autobiographical character named Abigail who lived in a large and creepy Victorian house modeled after the house that Ralph and I shared at the time. The book was largely conceived out of my love for children’s literature, visual journaling and mythology. I wanted to create a story with a wealth of interesting tidbits and visual stimuli for young readers who might be reluctant to pick up a book. (You can buy it here!)
