I am very pleased to announce my new project for publishers Albert Whitman & Company. I will be illustrating Code Talkers by Joseph Bruchac out next spring. Code Talkers are little-known and only recently celebrated group of young Navajo men who created the secret code that led to the victory of World War Two. I am so fortunate to work on this book by illustrating this extraordinary story. I am again honored to bring indigenous peoples stories to light.

I push my pencil into my sharpener. Whirrrrr. Might need to either put on safety glasses or walk away from my computer after reading this inquiry as the need to now poke both my eyes out is becoming eminent. But then as if the skies open up a new email request comes in…

I am pleased to announce a new book I just finished illustrating. "Miracle" is about a young girl, on a snowy day who sets out to find the miracles of nature. Written by first time author, Chanavia Haddock "Miracle" is a lyrical picture book for all ages. For this project I decided to work in a combination of traditional acrylics and digital painting. Here are a few pages from the book.

Finally! Please visit me and my artwork at www.lunavilla.com It only took me 7 years to re-do. Although I love the old site's look and feel (and i might still try to work that style more into this one) I can now update everything myself and I have a blog space on the site too which I will migrate and combine all blogish things together at some point.
Also, I will have a store in the start of the year for posters, cards, bookmarks, prints and more!
