Over the course of the year, did your project change and grow into something unexpected? Describe.
My project grew into something which I never expected. I never thought my project would reach out internationally and beyond my high school carrier. Yes, I always hoped that my children's book might one day be published, although I did not imagine it would be in the very near future. Nor did I imagine that so many people would be interested in my book. I truly am humbled by the people who have helped me and the feats that my book has the potential to reach.
How will you incorporate the final project/product into your presentation? What will be your visual representation(s) of the work you did throughout this year?
During my presentation the judges will be able to see all my rough drafts and palettes I used during the illustration process. I will also pass the final project around the room so they can see how everything was put together. I will also have my paint set and templates used during painting available and ready for the judges to also experience.
What are some of the roadblocks you’ve encountered in completing your project and how did you overcome those roadblocks?
During the printing process and publication process of my book I can into major communication issues between myself and the company. These issues were resolved when I emailed and called the company and we had the miscommunication/lack of communication squared away. This was the only roadblock I really had during the process.
