A close friend of mine had a baby in 2021. She loves magic and poetry, so I came up with the idea to co-create a book for her baby during her shower. I then had to make a plan for involving all her loved ones while keeping it a secret.
My sister and I wrote 16 verses for the book before the party. Then at the shower, each of my friend’s loved ones was assigned a monster representing a different number from 1 to 10 that they had to draw. For example, a monster with 1 horn.
All the illustrations were sent to me and my sister, who cleaned up the illustrations and turned them into outlines in Illustrator. I designed the layout of the book InDesign, incorporating other icons with the monster illustrations and then sent it to print.
