Kay Kay's Animal Taxi
You know the Star of Hope orphanage? (no? click here to see. And what the heck, donate while you're there) You may remember that Kay Kay is a local matatu (taxi van/bus) driver and gifted artist who painted the classroom walls with pictures of animals to help the kids with reading and spelling. This has given me an idea for a picture book featuring the Star of Hope. I've just begun working on the story, but right now it's about Kay Kay picking up the animals in his matatu on the way to the orphanage for a portrait session. Here's my first sketch and a few photos.
