Hello everyone, my name is Mario Ucci and I am here as the creat.... no, I am here as Octavia's friend and chronicler. 

This little girl was born a few months ago, when I started to realize my little daughters were going through some of the very same things I did when I was a little boy. 

Octavia is a little 6 years old girl. Misunderstood and a bit of an outcast who struggles to find love and belonging. 

People who are close to her think she is needy. And right now she believes that's true. Her beautiful hair sometimes transforms into needy tentacles with which she tries to grab love and attention from everyone.

She doesnt think she is lonely. I's not sure she knows the concept of loneliness with all the words. She is most happy when she is alone, anyway.

Her story is a story of "weird" people... or how I like to call them: Happy.

I am here because, like everyone else in her life, I cant spend too much time with her. And I want to change that. I want to spend every single day hanging out with her and hearing what she has to say.

Now, a little bit about myself:

I am an Art Director at REDKNUCKLES STUDIOS and a painter working in the animation industry. I have art directed a few things such as the Gorillaz music videos. I have also worked and an artist on a few feature films like Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and The Prince of Persia, amongst others.

My true passion is creating characters and stories that are close to my heart, my "pillow books"

I hope Octavia will find all the attention and love she needs in this world, and grow up knowing she belongs.

Thank you!!!

Mario ucci

In here, you are the creator. 

I will draw and paint on a bristol board with either watercolour, gouache or oils whatever idea you want for Octavia (or, depending on your idea, I might paint it instead even if it does not feature Octavia). 

Plus all the other rewards except the shippable ones.
