Stopping Halfway for Cornerstone Stories (2013)
Everything from the illustrations, story flow, page layout and writing was done by myself. I picked the Chinese fable, “Stopping Halfway” as it resounds very strongly with a life principle that I agree with– that if one defaults on their work halfway, all their efforts will be wasted and nothing fruitful comes from it. Therefore, diligence and perseverance is the key.
Character concepts for a children’s storybook app that is currently under development. The focus of the storybook app revolves around the re-telling of famous Malaysian legends and folklore, via a classroom setting.
The idea is to keep our local tales alive in this modern age, and easy enough for readers as young as 4 to understand and remember. The first story in this series is the re-telling of Puteri Gunung Ledang.
