Bushyhead is a heartfelt, educational and uplifting children’s story of a young girl who is frustrated with her crazy curly hair and teased at school because of it. After seeing children at the hospital without hair, she learns to appreciate hers and share it with others. Bushyhead teaches black hair pride, self-love, compassion, and about cancer and hair loss.
I designed a set of colorful, detailed, warm, and friendly illustrations to complement this charming story. Creating page concepts and layouts, a look and identity for characters, and delightful background settings.
