It is an imaginative children picture book. First time I combine 3D puppet with 2D digital illustration.
About the project:
The sky above is an illustrated children’s book. I created the story and illustrations. Imagination is a child’s best gift. My manuscript examines the child’s imagination in order to present the innocent view of the child. Children’s picture book stories are quite different from the adult graphic novel or comic novel. Because children see this world in a rather innocent and simple way, the stories are often very minimal and direct. Usually it only has one problem and one climax. Moreover, the philosophy in the book is often wrapped up with imagination. My story is, like many children’s book stories, very straightforward. I hope through imaginative story telling, children can appreciate beauty and learn how to discover beauty in our ordinary life. It is the first time that I try to combine 3D elements with 2D digital drawing.

Risks and challenges
The sky above is my MFA thesis project, so all of the illustrations have been finished. The only risk is that I am not very familiar with self- publishing, but I will try hard to find more information about it and compare several different online publishing house and choose the best one.
