Late last year as I was diligently writing my paper, (otherwise known as spending countless hours on social media) I received a message on the Flight to the Stars Facebook page. Julie, a student from FEU, asked me if she could do her thesis on relaunching Flight with new illustrations. I took about .0001 seconds to ponder about this and typed “yes”, but in my mind it was more, “HELL YA!”. My only condition was that I get a copy if she had any extras.
When I came back to Manila for Christmas break, I met up with Julie and she showed me her illustrations. It was her first time meeting me so I tried to act all nonchalant but inside I was freaking out at how good these were. Here are some of my favourites:
And you know.. typical Julie…she didn’t stop there! She also had these ideas on how to advertise the book if ever there would be a relaunch. She thought about having airplane giveaways, bookmarks, and my personal favorite: a purple box invite that opens into a star! Here are pictures of me geeking out over them:
All jokes aside, thank you so much Julie. I am very honoured that you used your crazy good skills on Flight to the Stars. Congrats on graduating and I wish you a great future and career where you share your crazy good talents! I’m also very sorry for overusing ‘crazy good’. You would think that someone who wants to write for a living would come up with more creative adjectives.
