How were your illustrations used? :
Product design, Self Promotion/portfolio

How did you make this work:
I painted illustrations about a kind and curative friendship. "We can be confident and do not need to be flawless, the incomplete beauty makes our feature." I did some lovely and curative accessories based on them for the kids who have the similar experience as the girl in my story. I made hats, finger ornaments and a choker, which all made by wool. They are shaped by needles, warm water and soap.
