Create a rough draft of a story about Lola's umbrella. I thought of a girl who held a bag of French fries while walking with her parents. She met a group of seagulls and grabbed the French fries. The girl pressed the mechanism and popped out a beautiful umbrella with a black crow scaring away seagull.

Before the project started, I analyzed several main characters through Lola's profile, 1, the seagull, 2, Lola herself or the little girl in a beautiful hat, and finally, the crow. Because the crow is in the hat, there is no design yet. After the style effect, Lola wants is determined, it will be further expanded.

First, I created for the girls, I used crayons, watercolours, markers, and coloured pencils to show the girls' naughty thoughts and other emotions, and I waited for Lola to tell me what she was looking forward to.

Then, I took many photos of seagulls to get a feel for the role setting of seagulls.
