Illustrator of The Leafy Sea Dragon
Lora Findlay has a graphic design degree from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, California. She was thrilled when asked to illustrate this story. She loved the beautiful leaves adorning Sam’s body, and knew they’d be a challenge to draw. For accuracy, she needed Sam to sit still while posing, but after blinking, squirming and scratching his snout for the umpteenth time, the normally calm Lora snapped, a picture that is, capturing the true essence of Sam. They’ve become good friends, and she loves him very much.
