The idea of Nightlights came from a very early memory. When I was a kid, I used to stay awake at night, and I could see little color dots in the dark, like glitter. I used to imagine that I could catch those dots and release them, while drawing any shape I wanted. ”

This morning over at Kirkus, I talk to author-illustrator Lorena Alvarez about her new graphic novel, Nightlights (Nobrow, March 2017).

That is here, and next week here at 7-Imp I’ll have some more spreads from the book.
