Dasha's Final Project
So, my sister, who is 13, is living in California while I am here in Portland.
She is a very creative individual and I wanted to create an assignment that would not only stimulate her creativity, but mine, too. She is a great writer so I proposed to her an idea. I asked her to write a children's story so that I could create and illustrate a children's book.
This soon became "What If I Were Something Else?", a children's book by Barbara Hayes, illustrated by me!
After gesso-ing sheets of raw canvas, cutting them up, folding them, punching holes and weaving the binding with yarn, I painted each individual page. I didn't change any parts of the original story.
