[Comics] The Adventures of Nala and Firefang

Graphic Design
Other Illustration

This project was a dream come true where I collaborate with my then 12 year old daughter. I came up with the concept/story. While I let her design two main characters, a cat with hijab called ‘Nala’ and her Dragon ‘Firefang’. The story was part of a compilation of several young and aspiring muslim comic artist from Indonesia, titled ‘Comic Junior #1 – Berbuat baik’ (Do good deeds). Here drawing were done manually on paper and later digitally lettered and added greyscale. The comic consisted of 12 pages.
