The Seababies Adventures World

Since childhood, I’ve longed to paint and write, but challenges and life in general forced me to compromise my love for the arts. When I move to the States, I strived to succeed and provide for my family. I returned to school and began building my life again, as I’m sure many other legal immigrants have done. It wasn’t until ten years ago that I finally was able to make the time to be an artist, to write and paint again.

I’m fascinated by the ocean. I can only imagine all the creatures that live within its depths. In my mind, it’s a magical world, thriving with kingdoms and countries. Each kingdom has its citizens, rules, and culture, similar to how we live on land. The difference is that they live (mostly) in harmony and don’t have wars or nuclear power. There will always be squabbles, but in general, it’s a peaceful place. This was my vision of MerrowLand, where Whimsea and her friends live.

Sometimes shells from this kingdom get washed onto the beach. Each one tells its own story. Maybe it housed a funky little crab like Seamore. Or perhaps a baby octopus or a little mermaid crept in there to sleep. My imagination explored the possibilities, and my hands created Whimsea and her little friend Seamore using clay and shells.

My goal was to tell a story and empower kids to believe in themselves and the strength of friendship. I’m sure many of you can relate to their stories in the books.

I also love classic children’s books, and this is what inspired the classical look of the covers. I wanted to create a magical world using words, figurines, and illustrations.

Overcoming difficulties and differences with the power of friendship

  • Are you fascinated by the vast ocean, its legends, and the creatures living within its depths?
  • Has fear of failure or ridicule ever held you back from your potential?
  • Have friends supported and empowered you when you’ve felt alone?

If this sounds like you, then dive under the sea and join the Seababies for adventures in the MerrowLand kingdom.

I hope you’ll join us, along with Whimsea and her friends, and learn a little bit about sea life in the process. You can find our campaign here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ronesa-aveela/seababies-adventures.
