Tigerlily and the Other Planet is an adventure story which takes place in our world, and inside the runaway imagination of Tigerlily the cat.  As a way of escaping a destructive toddler, Tigerlily’s imagination transports her to the Other Planet, where she experiences shipwrecks, starry waterfalls, shattered skies, alternate universes, winged buildings, and ghost gardens.  The joy of her other-planetary adventures is muted by her ever present fear of not being a normal cat. 

All of these images were created using 2D and 3D digital art tools.  The 3D Images will have the option to be experienced in 3D VR.  The book is still a work in progress.  All images copyright Karin LaPadula 2019.

In addition to being a children's book illustrator, I've worked in the video games and VR industries as a 3D environment artist for many years.
