How were your illustrations used? :
Book Cover/s, Book inside or spot illustration/s

How did you make this work:
‘Making Happy’ is a very raw story of a family going through a trying time. It takes a lot of courage for the author to tell it. By delivering soothing art to this story, I hope I can give some comfort to the young readers who are going through the same thing. To express the many emotions in the characters, I used facial expressions as well as different details and color in each illustration.
