This piece provided many opportunities to learn and practice new skills. Artistically, working in Colored Pencil and Ink was new and taught me about color-blending; plus it was necessary for me to really study Kamaehameha butterfly images in order to do the illustrations. Book-making was totally new and self-taught, requiring me to come up with a design, format using computer programming skills, and manually assemble the parts. It proved to be a much bigger challenge than I had imagined. In order to develop the text for the book, I visited numerous websites which enhanced my scientific understanding of the life-cycle and other aspects of the Vanessa Tameamea. I'm grateful for this opportunity.
