A little boy forms an unusual friendship with a girl who lives in a treehouse.
A little boy, Theo is an introverted 6-year boy, who finds adventures and thrill in love for books and imagination. He loves playing pretend and going on adventures in his bedroom, even naming his room the “magic box”. However, finding it tough to make friends in school, he is mostly alone. One day, on his way back from school, he decides to explore the nearby woods. Exhausted from running around, he decides to take a rest on a big tree stump nearby and a peculiar treehouse in the distance catches his attention. He gives in to his curiosity and decides to explore it. As he approaches closer to the foot of the tree house, he hears a voice coming from above. He climbs up the ladder and peers in through entrance to see an energetic little girl inside. Just like Theo, Alfie enjoys taking adventures in her treehouse, alone with her imagination. She is so immersed in her role that she did not even notice Theo peering in. In that moment, Theo knew that he wanted to befriend her and wanted to be part of the narrative.

After writing these 3 stories, I found that I was inclined to explore how I can do the interior for the first story. The 2 interiors I decided to work on are :
- Theo’s bedroom
- Alfie’s treehouse
Before I started drawing, I did some research to get an understanding and feel of what the 2 interiors could look like.
For Theo’s Bedroom:
I thought that i would look more interesting if I had her treehouse in a triangle shape, rather than just a rectangle, so I decided to use this as a main source of reference.
