The Rosette is a graphic novel co-written by Shannon Galpin and Devon Galpin Clarke and illustrated by Mariana Prieto. It tells the story of a teenager girl who is born with the power to shapeshift into animals and a mysterious rosette birthmark on the back of her neck. On her 4th birthday she gets a gift of a stuffed snow leopard, which she names Himalya, Himmy for short. Himmy turns out to be alive and becomes her mentor and sidekick and helps her control her powers. Eventually she understands the meaning behind her rosette birthmark and learns of a parallel animal world that is working to fight the sixth extinction, and they have been waiting for The Rosette’s arrival. Integrating the lessons learned from field research with Endangered Activism and a lifelong passion for endangered species and wildlife conservation, Devon has created a superhero story with heart and purpose. In the graphic novel, Himmy is invisible to everyone but The Rosette and other animals, but leaves silver footprints behind - this sparked Devon’s first streetart project in Paris in the fall of 2017 - silver snow leopard footprints walking through the streets of Paris with Himmy’s distinctive heart shaped pinky toe.
