Lilliputians are tiny people who occupy the in-between spaces of our world. Sometimes, if you're careful, you can catch a glimpse of one. 7" Kara is a suburban fantasy comic aimed at young girls. Inspired by books such as "The Borrowers", "The Littles", and "Gulliver's Travels", 7" Kara follows the adventures of the 11 year old Lilliputian Kara. Kara lives with her parents in an old doll house that's been hidden away in the back of a neglected shed. Isolated her entire life, she has few Lilliputian friends her own age, and even less experience with the outside world. Everything she knows has been learned first hand or has been taught to her by her parents. Her life changes drastically when a human family moves into the house her family lives near. Will Kara make a new friend? Or is there something darker, possibly more dangerous in store for her?

Inspired by traditional children's books and novels, 7" Kara is a 3 volume series that goes beyond the issues explored in stories like The Borrowers and The Littles. Each page of the main story is traditionally painted in watercolor to best capture the nostalgic feeling older children's books convey. Volume 1 sets up a story most readers are already familiar with: miniature girl goes exploring, makes friends with humans. One parent is complicit, the other is against her adventures. In Kara's case, one parent would be horrified if he knew what she was doing. Volume 2 will begin turning the well known tale on its head, exploring the dynamic between Kara's parents, Rowan and Meldina as a couple, as well as Kara's dynamic with her parents as individuals, and her growing desire for independence. This desire is expressed through her growing friendship with Naomi, her human friend, and the choices Kara makes under Naomi's influence. Volume 3 will focus on the affect these choices have on Kara, her family, and Naomi. Volume 2 is slated to debut in Fall 2016.
