Tulie’s Garden is my personal exploration of what it means to be male—especially as it relates to emotional vulnerability and authenticity. In other words, how I would hide and what I didn’t want others to know about me.

The graphic novel, complete with 48 of my own illustrations, chronicles the ongoing process of my self-identity and self-realization. It’s intended as a meditation space for others to engage with their own explorations and to provide gentle, affirmative guidance through the journey from boyhood to manhood.
