‘My Forbidden Room’ is a picture book which symbolizes people pretend to be positive when feeling upset by hiding their true emotions. The ‘Room’ is getting overloaded as time passes. And then the book shows experience in ‘cleaning up the “Room”’ by facing their weaknesses, embracing themselves, accepting and letting go their sadness and regrets.
These pieces are selected from my picture book called ‘My Forbidden Room’, the 7th book of my dark picture book series, which shows the dark side of human nature.
Since this is a story based on my experience which I would like to share, so I tried to visualize my feeling and what I saw in my mind to storyboard and sketches of pictures in computer. Dark color palette was used when I want to express my sadness; and brighter color tone was used when I let go their sadness and regrets. I color few pieces in one time to keep the content cohesive.
