A Bus Ride
Personal project, 2017-2020
It is a story of building an unlikely friendship that overcomes initial prejudice. Toby, the little crocodile, saw a man with a dangerous looking necklace and a lady he assumed was frowning under her face cover. Toby wanted to avoid them at all costs, however, through a bus ride, he found out that they are the opposite of who he thought they would be.
This story is inspired by what I observed in Cambridge, UK, when I studied there. I was impressed by the variety of people in Cambridge, clearly with different lifestyles and views, living side by side.
