Julia Henderson-Osho (1S) who's artwork has also been selected as one of 12 winners of the Kingston Magical Market Design Competition. She is so excited! Her design, Rona Rainbow, will be brought to life in 3D on an augmented reality trail in Kingston Town Centre. A team of animators are turning her design into a moving, dancing, wiggling 3D creation, which launched last week. People will be able to see the magic through a special app and discover where the creatures can be found across Kingston.
