Why did you make this work:
There is an old wives' tale that tells us the relationships we have are all connected through a string we cannot see. I wanted to bring this tale to life through vibrant colours for all ages, as a reminder of the relationships we have with our people, throughout the phases of our lives.

How was the illustration used:
Picture book portfolio ready for submission to publishers and agents.

How did you make this work:
Both illustrations are through mixed medium, using gouaches, soft pastels and colour pencils. The story I am depicting is for all ages. To accommodate this, I chose soft, vibrant colours with the adaptation of fun elements to engage the younger age audience while presenting a deeper meaning to wider readers.
