The Pie Eaters

Graduation Project
Children's Book Illustrator
Fall 2009

The Pie Eaters is a children’s book created to teach children that meat comes from animals and that, when they eat meat, they should be mindful of where it comes from and use it wisely.

Adopting an indirect method of story-telling, the plot blossomed into the story of The Pie Eaters. Here, the food becomes the teacher of values and judgement in the magical Land-of-No-Lights. The story draws several parallels to reality, giving children a new perspective on the value of food.

Special thanks to instructor Casey Hrynkow for guiding me through the project development and editing the writing, and writer Farideh Kheradmand for inspiring me with her expertise on children.
