Song of Nüna

This children's book focuses on the connection we have to other life forms on Earth, specifically the humpback whale. The story draws from both world myths and scientific facts to weave a touching tale of our broken ties with Nature, and what we have to do to mend them. I both wrote and illustrated this story, inspired by the many whale stories in folklore and this mammal's modern day plight.

Tomatoes on the Roof

This story is also a vignette from my early childhood in Tehran, where my mother would fill our rooftop with tomatoes to roast in the sun.

Octopus: A Story of Evolution

The octopus is my favorite sea creature. Its intelligence and ingenuity are truly unmatched in the ocean world. It's no wonder that in Oceanic mythology, the octopus is a creator deity. Having researched the octopus from a cultural and scientific standpoint, I created a story that would make the evolution of different species both fun and educational, opening up the reader's mind to, not just one, but several origin stories.
