When I was creating the main character in “Five Birds on a Wire”, I chose to create a little girl character with free flowing hair, a simple white dress and bare feet.
I wanted her style to convey a sense of freedom, joy and comfort. My goal is to appeal to the children of today. I wanted the character to radiate modern-simplicity with a touch of ‘child-like sweetness’.
I remember simpler times when running outside and taking in the breeze was an appreciated experience. I wanted the character to be reflective of those times.
