MFA Faculty Pablo Cartaya

MFA Faculty Pablo Cartaya’s book Tina Cocolina reviewed in Booklist: a “dense but sympathetic narrative, the author touches on hot-button, mean-girl issues in scenes of Tina feeling left out and discouraged. But whimsy is really the driving force here, a tone that’s extended in the cheerful, candy-colored illustrations featuring swirly, fanciful details and patterns, reminiscent of Mary Engelbreit’s work.”
