Mock up of spread.

Personal project to develop and illustrate a story, ‘The Jingle that changed the Jungle’. This was an entry for the 2019 Picture This Illustration Competition.

It was no ordinary day, in fact it was Maya’s Birthday! Maya found that her birthday gift not only brought her fun, but also attracted a very special friend. Together they explored the jungle and Maya knew things simply had to change. Although Maya was only little the problem she faced was massive. She called upon an unlikely crew of creatures and put their talents to good use. Many years later Maya finally gets to reap the rewards of the problem she undertook as a little girl. She considers herself so fortunate to live in one of Earths most precious places. The story deals with themes of teamwork, patience, friendship, and caring for our planet. It addresses the idea that despite differences we can be united.
