When I was a kid, my gran used to tell us this story of a princess, her phoenix, a guava orchard, an evil king.. she used to add bits here and there- never telling the same story- everytime my sister and i satyed at hers, she'd tell a different story with the same characters. I loved listening to these little stories :)
so for my personal project this year, i decided to take all the sotries she told us, re-write them into one story and make a short novel with illustrations...
here is some of the art work.
this is some character designing for a mandolin player which features in the story..
