Final art for pages 4/5 of "Gaijin-American Prisoner of War" written & illus.d by me and publ.d by Disney/Hyperion. There's a text frame in this art that's not yet placed which reads: "Sunday, Dec. 7th, 1941. San Francisco Bay- Six months ago Ishiro Miyamoto traveled back to Japan to help his ailing father and tend to the family business. He left his wife Adeline and son Koji behind, promising to return soon. Today is Koji's 13th birthday." Issei -"first generation"- is a Japanese language term used to specify the Japanese people first to immigrate to America. Their children are referred to as Nisei (second generation), and their grandchildren are Sansei (third generation). Water color, gouache, 2012.
