I've been working on these images for a number of years. When I was working on my first graphic novel,
Enemy Ace: War Idyll I was approached by Gabor Barabas, a good friend of mine, to illustrate some poems he had
written.. Gabor is a pediatric neurologist in New Jersey and an accomplished, published poet as well. He had
written a series of poems calls "Find Me a Voice" about the Holocaust. Gabor's grandparents died at Auschwitz and
his parents escaped Auschwitz. I jumped at the chance to work with him as the poems were very powerful and the
Holocaust is an interest of mine anyway. My father was in the Navy during the Second World War and he had an uncle
who helped to liberate one of the camps.
We finally believe we've found a publisher in Kasra Ghanbari. Kasra and I just took a trip to Poland to visit Auschwitz
and other camps. He wanted me to visit the actual sites and get a feel for the reality of the places. It was an
incredible trip. I'll post a link here as well for images from that trip.
I hope you like the work.
