Stand Tall Molly is an illustrated children's book about Molly, a girl who is affected by bullying. I am interested in visual narrative and my aim was to make the piece fun and relatable for the audience, whilst developing my visual storytelling skills to convey the experience of the central character.
I wanted the appearance of the character to be quite quirky and cute. I gave her bright colourful ginger hair as this is often a feature that children would pick on.
Molly is doodling a pirate ship adventure, envisioning herself and her pets as the crew members.
A finished double page spread from the book. Mixing 2D, 3D and digital and traditional techniques was something I wanted to push in my practice.
This is an insight into my creative practice. As you can see I am working in a collage style, painting, cutting and experimenting with positions before securing down with glue.
