Personal project for Folktale Week 2021
Posted 3 weeks ago and submitted by Lisa Wee | Share link: http://illo.cc/95022

Many illustrators struggle with commissioned work, family, social lives and rest. To even think of doing personal projects felt like you need a miracle where the illustrations just appear. For me, it has been a busy year. I had some amazing clients like World Vision and Kristen Kish – all will be revealed soon. But I felt I needed to recalibrate.

Working to the client’s timeline meant not much experimenting, so I needed an outlet for innovation to break new ground within myself. This year, I choose to do a personal project using prompts provided by Folktale week, 2021. I choose a folktale that involved a girl with white hair. From Indonesian to European folktales, there have been a lot of tales. I find them fascinating and unusual.

Testimonial
Your vision for the book is unbelievable. I am just in awe of some of the things you came up with. The dog mapping of walking through the house and hangers in the closet. It is truly magical. (Holly Bonner - Blind mom monster detective) Everyone loves your enchanting artwork! The colors are wonderful. Our readers will love looking at the happy children and all the details. Thank you, Lisa, for a GREAT job on this project!! (Ladybug magazine)
