Hi there! My name is Kendal Shomura and I am so excited to share my drawings with you! As a former 7th grade teacher, I always wanted to create a book for kids but had no idea where to start. It wasn't until the shelter in place orders from COVID-19 that I discovered I actually COULD draw. I took my illustrations and self-published a book in 2020. It's been an absolute joy to create fun images depicting my favorite food (SUSHI) in everyday scenarios. See Sushi: A to Z was a true passion project and the support received was immense.
A lot has changed over the past couple years, but the one constant is my passion for creating and storytelling.
I recently dove head first into digital illustration and have
been exploring different perspectives beyond just sushi characters. This resulted in When You Dream being born.
With 40 pages of illustrations and rhymes, When You Dream
is a delightful detour from my sushi characters.
For my other upcoming book, Meaggy & Bubby's Musical Adventure, I combined my new love for digital illustration
with my hand-drawn colored pencil style to create a
unique and enhanced experience for my readers.
