O farewell O farewell
Using imagination to tell a story in a book format was the opportunity presented to us. This was deﬁnitely a challenge to work without any constraints. The only requirements were that the story should be engaging and make other care for.
For this project I used an old story a friend told me from her school days. The story was about a prince who went through life as if there were a sword dangling above his head. The sword was hung by a thread as thin as hair which would snap any minute and end everything he had worked so hard to get.
This story presented an opportunity to make an illustrative book on how to lighten up and get rid of the unwanted stress. The language used references the Shakespeare time to bring in some humor and lightness.
