Narrative: I lived in Aguacatal de Ojojona, F.M., Honduras from 1984 to 1986. The moon, flashlights, and lanterns lit the way to Aguacatal's annual dance, where I went with my female neighbors. This center-fold illustration was part of a book I wrote and illustrated. Inquiring Voices Press accepted my manuscript for publication, but then they closed. I created a female-centric book subconsciously. Females couldn't wear pants/shorts. I haven't fit in anywhere.
Walking to Aguacatal's Dance
Narrative: This represents the home I shared with a family in Honduras as a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer for two years in Francisco Morazán (a central mountain region). I created the paint lines at the home's bottom because Honduran homes usually had a different for the bottom. The box signifies that categorizing countries and people is problematic. For instance, many believe all of Honduras is hot and muggy, but where I lived it was cool. Hondurans are also culturally diverse.
