Hello Kitty by Candie Bolton represents the emotional and uncertain time of transition into adulthood. You're experiencing many things, good and bad, and you're not quite sure about your place in this world. What kind of person are you? What kind of person will you grow up to be? And more importantly, what kind of person do you want to be?
With this design, Candie expresses the idea that you don't need to let go of childhood to be an adult. It expresses the revelation that memories don't have to be forgotten in order to grow.
Hello Kitty has a perpetual childlike innocence to her, but what happens when Hello Kitty grows up? Candie's imagines Hello Kitty going through these same iconic adolescent events and, despite her uncertainty, never letting go of the magic that makes her Hello Kitty.
