LET'S GO ON A PICNIC

Illustrated Children's Book

PROJECT OVERVIEW

Originally my senior capstone project, my children's book attempts to tackle the subject of consent, formatted for children. Although a rather controversial subject for American audiences, comprehensive sexual education programs have had success in many European countries. Starting as young as four-years old in some cases, most programs focus not on sex but rather on healthy friendships/relationships and the importance of setting and respecting boundaries.

As part of the project, I was also given a physical space in which to display their final project. Using large-format vinyl prints, I recreated the setting of the storybook, modeling my exhibition after a library reading corner or a children's book display that might be seen in a book store.

PROJECT UPDATE

The initial illustrations were created using Adobe Illustrator. After graduating, I took a course for Apple Procreate to further my digital illustration, during which I was able to revisit the project.

This allowed me greater freedom
to explore different styles and textures.
