My inner journey from boyhood to manhood

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 book contains 48 of my own illustrations, chronicling an 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.
