The Last Cherry Blossom
By Graham Franciose
Published Issue 094, October 2021
Graham Franciose grew up in the forests of Massachusetts. His work reaches back to those times of exploration and imagination, where anything was possible. His whimsical, sometimes emotional, illustrations show a sliver of a story, a moment between the action, leaving the exact circumstances and narrative up to the viewer. There is a sense of familiarity and honesty within his characters and scenes, as well as a sense of mystery and wonder. He currently lives and works as a professional artist and illustrator in Austin, TX. See more of his work on his site and follow him on Instagram.
