What Do You Do With An Idea?

A child has an idea, then struggles with acceptance. The idea follows him around, and Unknownwhen he trusts his conscience, he realizes he feels happier. So he plays with the idea, and it grows. He builds it a new house, and finally, when the idea is ready, it changes the world. Besom’s playful illustrations gradually grow from black and white to colourful, inspiring us all to nurture those ideas.

What Do You Do With An Idea? written by Kobi Yamada and illustrated by Mae Besom makes an abstract concept tangible.
