Author/Anime Color Palette Series: Hannah x The Painted Lady, Katara
Welcome to my author/anime color palette series! Where my obsession with hex codes and middle grade/graphic novels come together. I'll break down an author's photo color palette and which animated character they remind me of.
Hannah V. Sawyerr, @HannSawyerr, is a noteworthy 2021 #PitchWars Mentor and former Youth Poet Laureate of Baltimore (an honor awarded by DewMore Baltimore, the Baltimore Mayor's Office, Urban Word NYC, and Enoch Pratt Libraries). Her debut novel-in-verse, Call Him By Name, reveals tragic communal truths told through court transcripts, journal entries, and poetry. Sawyerr's MC "Amina Conteh has always believed in using her words as a weapon, but when she experiences a sexual assault from a trusted clergy member, her voice falls quiet." Published autumn 2023 with world rights bought by Abrams, readers will learn the many different avenues of healing, love, and self-strength.
What's Hannah's author color palette like?
Hex codes include: doppio, burnt marmalade, sweet soufflé, and robin egg.
Hannah speaks out for her community—as does fave Avatar: The Last Airbender water tribe member, Katara. In Episode 43, "The Painted Lady," Katara disguises herself as a goddess river spirit to heal the sick and starving villagers who are being poisoned by the Fire Nation's power-hungry operations. Katara is ultimately thanked by the real Painted Lady for aiding the people in her place.
