Perth illustrator Christopher Maxwell is raising funds to realise his dream to produce an inspirational children’s picture book.
Each picture will span two pictures and be accompanied by inspiring quotes. Christopher Maxwell writes:
As children become more and more reliant on their technology to entertain themselves, they are missing out on the wonderful world around them. This message is conveyed by a boy who is inspired by objects in his room, creating different fantasy worlds after having his electronic devices taken off him. This encourages kids to put down their electronic devices and to use their own imagination instead of having it created for them.
When we were little we lived in a world that was created for us, it was only our imagination that gave us freedom. This is why I want to share my book with others because everyone has an imagination, memories and a childhood. This book is not only for children, it also lets the adults escape to a wonderful world, get away from reality and be in touch with their inner child at the same time, being inspired.
Christopher is trying to raise a small portion on the costs on Pozible. Click here to view the campaign.
