The self initiated brief was a brief that was set by ourselves. I decided that for this project I wanted to take part in the MacMillan childrens book competition so decided to write and illustrate a childrens books and have a black and white dummy for hand in at the end of my project. My idea was to make children aware that everyone is different and that should be treated the same no matter what they look like. The children shouldn't go out their way to look like everyone else as everyone is their own individual person. Above are some of the black and white spreads for my dummy childrens book.
