DEAR FRIENDS

Book Illustration, Motion

A book I wrote and illustrated for my friends.

I first came up with the idea in my senior year of high school in 2015, when my friend told me that she felt lost and anxious about her future. To cheer her up, I thought I'd make a children's book for her, inspired by the classic Oh, the Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss. It's a project that's dear to me and I hope my message gets through to all my friends and anyone that feels afraid about the future, as well.

Printed book and hand-sewn character plushie.

Animated reading.
