Merky Books commissioned me to "re-imagine The Story of Tracy Beaker in an alternate universe".
I decided to focus on representing those from other skin colours to help more viewers feel represented.
Here is my artwork on show at the Merky Books Pop Up Event in Nov 2019 at the Beats by Dre Shoreditch Residency.
This is what the piece looks like in detail. I wanted to explore if Tracy Beaker was from a different cultural background. As a young person who always searched for characters who looked like me and struggled feeling any representation as a mixed race young girl, I felt inspired to push forward a cast with all shades of skin colours and hair types.
