Creativity isn't always about writing or painting or dancing. There are plenty of ways to explore your creative side and do something out of the ordinary, even for a short while. I love planning and tapping into this creative side - that's why I freelance write and manage this blog! Though, I also enjoy trying something new and doing a project that changes my daily routine.
For the month of December, a friend and I decided to create a little geeky project to celebrate a mutual friend's birthday. Our friend, Christina (http://fyspringfield.com/), is a fan of the TV show Orphan Black; in fact, we all like the show too. Instead of doing a Simpsons-themed gift this year, we went with an Orphan Black theme. We created a card from scratch (Alina is so talented!), bought a Polaroid camera, and we took her to dinner. The other piece to her gift, which explains the name of this blog post, was a "children's story" that featured a Funko Sarah Manning toy.
Captured over 12 images, a story was created about this little clone and her adventure around the story. Bits and pieces were included of things our friend liked. I have to say: I loved creating this story! Storyboarding, writing, snapping photos and art designing - all the planning came together for a cute project. And it turned out to be so much fun!
Unfortunately, I couldn't share the original posts with you all as they were going up. But, I did save the images and copy for a later date...which is today. To read the story of "The Little Clone", check out the 12 images below!
|This woman, Beth, was a mystery to her; Sarah was adopted and never knew her real family. She didn’t know what to do, so she searched online for answers but found nothing. There was only one person who could help...|
|She searched high...|
|...And she searched low.|
|She searched many different areas around the city and came up with nothing. With each new group or club she met, she hoped the next person would get her closer to finding the truth.|
|The search was taking its toll on her. No amount of drinks at the bar would cheer her up. Was she going crazy? Did the woman really look like her? All of these thoughts weighed on her mind.|
|Low and behold...it was Spice! The popular singer had used her connections to find an answer for Sarah. All of the searching and questions would lead to this moment. The mystery would soon be solved.|
|Meanwhile, in a high-rise building somewhere downtown...|
