The Little Prince

“You see, one loves the sunset when one is so sad.” 
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

An illustrated project that originated from a re-adaptation of The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

It chronicles the journey of one young Prince, out to chase these orange fruits. Planting them, he watches after them and gives them the care they need. When they seem right for picking, he places them carefully in his basket and heads to a cliff where he then climbs. Reaching the top of the cliff, he places them into clear cubes and cuts the string, allowing these oranges to fly.

I allude this journey of the Prince to the journey that a creator takes in creating something. Whether it is in illustration, art, design or music, we take care of our ideas and concepts, planting these seeds and sustain them with research and development and further thought. Bringing them to a certain-amount of completion, we attempt to let these creations leave us and to survive on their own by flying away. However, not all ideas are successful and though some may fail and fall back to the ground, they are not wasted, for they are now the fertiliser that generates new seedlings.
