Back in 2014, I did a personal branding/ portfolio titled The Undaunted Dandelion for my final year project. It's a story about a girl called Dandelion who is going to step out into a big strange world (By any sense, back then it was a symbol of graduating and entering the real world of the industry). Basically it's a story that leaves an open-ending, inviting people to follow her through her journey.
Dandelion pretty much is a reflection of myself, my thought, anxiety, hope, basically a mash of all things I feel internally. I relate so much to this character, and so I would love to create more of Dandelion's story. What you're about to see here is a development of Dandelion's characters and I called it "The Undaunted Dandelion Project", a still on-going doodle project about Dandelion.
I doodled about things responding to questions I asked myself, for example just trivial things like Dandelion's inner world; where does she live? what is she doing at her spare time?, or sometimes using Dandelion to tell a message I am reflecting about. This project is an exploration for myself, it still leaves an open-ending for me too and I guess that is what makes this project exciting.
In a way, as I am getting to know Dandelion, I am slowly learning parts of myself too.
