The Dot

Client: Weston Woods/Scholastic

Drawing is what Ramon does. It's what makes him happy. But in one split second, all that changes. A single reckless remark by Ramon's older brother, Leon, turns Ramon's carefree sketches into joyless struggles. Luckily for Ramon, his little sister, Marisol, sees the world differently. She opens his eyes to something a lot more valuable than getting things just "right."

A creative spirit learns that thinking "ish-ly" is far more wonderful than "getting it right" in this animated film adaptation of Peter H. Reynolds picture book Ish.
