Who I am & Why This Blog
Maritza Ruiz-Kim Artist & Writer Diablo Valley Region, San Francisco Bay Area
Welcome to this blog where I store all things related to my recent art + writing work.
I started the summer wanting to merge my interest in studying U.S. history, sociopolitical structures, and how people treat each other, into an art + writing project of some sort.
I wasn’t certain what form it would take.
I ended up with a picture book story about a girl who has her own ideas about what she wants, how she wants it, and what makes her get up & go!
Summer & Fall 2019:
I joined the Society for Picture Book Writers & Illustrators (SCBWI)
I wrote and wrote and wrote and I finished a picture book manuscript
I worked my art making proclivities into an illustration style that suits me 🙂
I made thumbnail sketches for my first picture book
I have almost finished full art for a couple page spreads…
and I’m almost ready to start sending this work into the world!
