"Color me" is a an interactive exhibition for the little ones, part of Sofia Design Week for Kids. A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by a favourite illustrator of mine and was thrilled when she invited me to take part in all of this.
I immediately loved the idea of kids having fun with original art. Еspecially in such a wonderful way. А coloring fort sounds like the best place to have fun, doesn't it?
Seven illustrators created different worlds and characters for the kids to choose among and the finished fort looked a lot like Wonderland. The only thing it needed was coloring.
And coloring it got.
I had to learn basic Illustrator for a day (which was a great thing since I've postponed this for ages) and it was both fun and frustrating at times. I lost sketches, lost a finished project and made two new ones on its place so at the end of the day it was all good. A stag, a hedgehog and a beaver proudly represented my take on Wonderland.
I was smitten by the finished project, by all the wonderful works and especially by the kids having fun with what we'd all done together. I even took a minute to leave a mark somewhere there, too.
thank you to Denodada for this lovely photo and also thank you to the cute little girl who is coloring bravely.
