Jonell Joshua’s Graphic Memoir, How Do I Draw These Memories?
“Jonell Joshua spent her childhood shuttling back and forth between Savannah and New Jersey – living in grandparents’ homes during the times her mother, struggling with mental illness, could not take care of her and her brothers. Together the family found a way to keep going even in the darkest of times. How Do I Draw These Memories? is a graphic novel memoir about nostalgia, faith, the preciousness of life, and unconditional love. From Jonell’s devastatingly brilliant pen as a writer and an artist, it plumbs the depths of what family can be, and how joy and hope can be found in the most ordinary and extraordinary moments.”
Jonell is a freelance illustrator based in Brooklyn, NY. She specializes in editorial illustration and animation and spot illustration. She is also the Assistant to the Chair in the Art and Design Education Department at Pratt Institute. headtopics.com
