Kabini Amin's playful story has so many layers and stories within stories. Take a 'closer look' at this story just like the little kid in the story is.
Kabini tells us why she took up the #6FrameStoryChallenge:
The challenge was a one of those perfect 'here's one rule, now go crazy with it!' type of briefs. The idea of weaving your own story with six words picked out of a mixed bag was just the right prompt needed to get excited and cook up fun stories. I'd asked someone else to pick out words for me, just so the selection would be really random. I love children's stories that are fun and absurd and the selection of completely unrelated words really pushed it in that direction. A quick timeline also meant that I dropped a lot of reservations and double checks which made the drawings more spontaneous and fun!Kabini Amin's Illustrations for the #6FrameStoryChallenge by Pratham Books
