Brave Book

Be Brave: tales and thoughts from deep down” is written and illustrated by me, Meredith Stoudenmire. The pages are filled with art and philosophy and inspiring stories from some of my most BRAVE friends. The volcano, which has been a destination in my previous work, has become the main character- flying through watercolor landscapes and learning how to face it’s fears. It’s a great graduation gift, high school, college, or beyond. I hope you like it!
