Final project 07-april-2011

The final project that my group and I have done is the Hiro's cooking journey. It is about
Hiro, who is a Singaporean cat with Japanese descent. He decides to try cooking curry fish after getting tired of eating raw fishes and buying a recipe book. After numerous arduous attempts, he managed to find the perfect way to cook curry fish. One day, while watching television programmes, Hiro chanced upon a cooking competition which he eagerly wanted to participate in. However, he was met with fierce objections from his parent.

This is the chosen style of our storybook. It is cute and kiddish. The color that we employ in this pictures is mostly simple tone color.
This is one of the draft scene of the storybook that we have thought of, but we think that it is not that kiddish in term of it character.Therefore we come up with another version.
This is the final version of our story book. The setting is more cozy and children could better relate to.
