ABOUT THE BOOK
This project was an opportunity to work on a topic that is close to both the author and I. It also allowed me to also experiment with my favourite medium, coloured pencils, and to design a book that has a unconventional format. The story follows Holly through her journey of discovering self confidence and the importance of being true to yourself. Real friends and family accept you for who you are regardless of appearance or talent.
Our book was transformed into a 3-minute animation piece for a children's television programme, Tales Alive. Developed by Peach Blossom Media, it aired on Singapore's free-to-air children's channel, OKTO.
