Book Dash is a Non-Profit organization that believes every child should own 100 books by the age of 5. They help to make this a reality in Africa, by holding events where creative teams volunteer to each create a book in 12 hours.
The story I got for this book was about a boy who finds shoes under a bed and gets transported to the places where those shoes might be worn. The problem was that there was no way to depict this with dialogue, so I split the spreads in half, having the shoe in its current environment in the first half while showing what his imagination transformed it into in the second half.
The short timeframe also meant that I had to keep the style simple, so I used a lot of texture and added in a chicken sidekick to give the pieces depth and interest.
