I got the idea for Janie the Witch during my junior year in RMCAD. It started from a class assignment when I had to design a girl and boy character participating in a holiday activity. I chose Halloween and pumpkin carving with a twist in the story.
I like fantasy and science fiction, but I wanted to create something that has these themes and ideas for young people. Janie the Witch is about a child witch and her misadventures with Jacob, her best friend. She transfers from a school of magical people to a school of non-magical people and the stories basically follows the ups and downs of her adjusting to her new environment.
The project was placed on the back burner after graduation. The story ideas never left, so I think now is a good time to continue working on it.
