Collaborated with JumpFromPaper, Pamela Sustaita used lots of colors in her arts to represent her spirited style.
Pamela named her cartoon backpack "kaleidoscope games". She thinks the use of the colors and the shapes of the composition reminds her of the view through a kaleidoscope, the splash of colors talks about fun, games but also sadness and really deep feelings that play with the image of a tiny and calm lamb.
The use of colors is very Pam and is also the reflection of her own interior. "I really do hope that if you look inside my throat, you will see all these colors.", she said.
