DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Young Yogi and the Mind Monsters

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Book Illustration

INSPIRATION:
A whimsical story, "Young Yogi and the Mind Monsters," was written by Sonja Radvila to understand the rich, ancient, and mind-bending philosophy of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. The story is filled with colorful visual and profound questions about how the mind works. As an illustrator interested in Yoga Sutras' philosophy and meditation, it was easy for Kaori to imagine each scene with a clear image.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
"Young Yogi and the Mind Monster" -Patanjali's classic Yoga Sutras through a Child's Eye is written by Sonja Radvila. The mind is a monster! Patanjali's classic Yoga Sutras seen through a child's eye. Through a whimsical story, Young Yogi and the Mind Monsters are a gift for readers looking to understand Patanjali's rich, ancient, and mind-bending philosophy.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The writer pitched to a crowdfunding website called Publishizer, and Atmosphere Press published it. They are sold worldwide on Amazon and Barnes and Noble etc.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The writer approached the artist in 2015, and they have started working on character designs. With many backs and forth and story changes, Kaori wrapped up the illustrations in 2018. With crowdfunding, the writer found a publisher to publish the books.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Kaori read the script and came up with sketches of all the characters with the writer's direction. When the designs were approved, the artist sketched the storyboard for each chapter. Then she created illustrations in pencils and papers and colored them in Photoshop and Illustrator.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
205mm x 205mm 101 pages book

TAGS:
illustration, book illustration, children book, picture book, Yoga Sutras, philosophy, spiritual illustration, japanese artist, kaori hamura long,

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Kaori read Patanjali's Yoga Sutras and study Yoga philosophy and Indian culture and art. She also tested her illustrations using a different medium to achieve the right feel for the story.

CHALLENGE:
Since it was a collaboration with a writer, the artist had to imagine what the writer is imagining. But she was very open to what the artist brought to the table and worked beautifully together.
