ILLUSTRATION AND WRITING

A CREATIVE EFFORT OF RJDG COLLABORATIVE, SONOITAVILLE MEDIA & RANDEL JACOB DESIGN GROUP, PLLC

IT ALL STARTED WHEN...

Storytelling and writing has been a deeply personal and private endeavor for me.

As an adult, writing became an outlet, only to be shared with those very close to me. It became a place for me to play within this world, without being seen.

Storytelling was a part of my life, imparted to me by my father. Instead of reading rote stories to my siblings and I, he would make up stories nightly. He would sometimes alter classic stories and rhymes then substituting our names for the main characters, altering the setting to be in the desert southwest (we are natives of Arizona), and naming our horses, dogs, cousins and friends as supporting characters. 

The storytelling of my father taught me that gestalt creativity and imagination can sometimes achieve a stronger effect on the telling of traditional themes. To me, this  allows a deeper and longer commitment to the messages of the story.
