Cloud is a character who I've been drawing for some time. A while back I started sending out her adventures to folk on the Latorica mailing list - nothing to click, no reams to read, no actions to support or causes to digest: just a gentle sojourn in a magical world with Cloud. If that sounds like something you'd like to enjoy, sign up to Cloud Tales for a little magic for your inbox! They are sent semi-occasionally.
Cloud Tales - The Book
Cloud Tales – Volume One was weaved from Cloud's adventures so far. It's a hard cover, limited edition book, a beautiful heart-felt gift for the special people in your world (including yourself).
I am so pleased that Latorica Studio has partnered with the Rainforest Action Group and their auspicing organisation the Rainforest Information Centre, to donate 10% of every copy of Cloud Tales sold toward their efforts protecting the Ecuador Forests. It is special magic when we can all benefit and a gift keeps on giving!
About the Book
Cloud Tales, shares the adventures of Cloud, a magical being who returns to Earth to help us remember how to heal, and how to love. This is water storytelling for the soul. A wonderfully rich and imaginal series, Cloud offers gentle guidance and steady hope in a space of deep honesty about the fears and perils of being alive at this time. In Volume One, Cloud hears the call of her friends, the trees. It is a call for help. Cloud answers and sets out on a quest to bring back the way of water, there are many encounters along the way.

About the Rainforest Action Group
The Rainforest Action Group (MRAG) undertakes research, education, advocacy work, and non-violent direct action to protect rainforests worldwide. We are committed to securing the earth's ecological future and a sustainable and equitable society. Our current campaign focus is halting the massive expansion of mining in Ecuador.
Ecuador is one of the world's biodiversity hotspots, with more vertebrate and endemic plant species than the entire United States and Northern Europe combined. This mega-diverse nation also contains some of the world's most endangered forests. Unfortunately, in 2017 the government sold 14% of the land in Ecuador in concessions to mining companies. Much of this is in protected forests and on Indigenous territories.
MRAG works in solidarity with the Caminantes Collective in Ecuador – a collective of Indigenous groups and local community groups to develop and share resources and support their fight against Australian mining companies.
