Children's literacy- "Catching Clouds"

Over the summer I had an opportunity to work on a book for Children's literacy, "Catching Clouds" written by Aleesah Darlison, published by Oxford University Press Australia and New Zealand.

The book is about a girl who wanted to become friends with a cloud. They spend time together going for a walk and riding through the night sky but one day the cloud started to miss its other friends in the sky.

I enjoyed illustrating the girl and the cloud's adventure, especially the night sky scene. I was also asked to do a hand-written text for the title and the re-cap of the story at the end. It was interesting writing text with paint and brush.

The book is not for sale at retail stores but is available for schools to read for children.
