the masterpiece childrens book front cover

the masterpiece

what happens when your light goes out? where does the power to continue come from? and who decides who you are anyway?

the masterpiece is (one part of) the story of Bea an ethereal, bright little girl who grew up believing things outside the lines and lost herself. 


drawn entirely with b. loiacono’s

non-dominant left hand _a homage to error and no sense_ the masterpiece is an autobiographical account of truth, oddness and spirit.



when the lights go out inside 

when the world closes in 

when you fall

and it is DARK

things feel scary

things feel unsure

you could use a hug but it is nowhere

to be found

you are in the dark.

o DARK is a lyrical story of befriending the sad +finding the light in black.
