I created this short children’s book as part of a group project on Instagram, where the hosts wrote an eight-page story and invited other artists to illustrate it however they wished. This was my take on the story of Little Witch, who receives and invitation to and prepares to attend the Midsummer Night Festival.
While many other artists chose the traditional witch setting of a forest, I instead decided to go with a more urban sitting, trying to inject something modern, fresh and relatable into the visual approach to the story. The setting is based on my location, Oakland and San Francisco, California. (In fact, all of the herbs that Little Witch uses in her hat are all ones that grow locally here in the Bay Area!)
