Book illustrator, Leonard Paul, was recently nominated on the Shortlist of the LILLIAN SHEPHED AWARD, is for "Excellence in Illustrator". His work is for PISM FINDS HER MISKANOW, by Portage & Main Press.
Part of my passion for art, my culture and heritage is being able to contribute to books such as this to assist in bringing to life the stories told of First Nations peoples. The book, "PISIM finds her Miskanow" was launched recently in Winnipeg and is now for sale.
Working on publications such as this has also encouraged and inspired me to produce my own book based on the Mi'kmaq legends and heritage. I am working on it now and am excited to have the support of publishers to produce this new work.
