Old Girl is a female creature between a teenge girl and a mature woman ever keeping a young mind. Old Girl is surrounded by handsome guys, but they are either married, in a relationship, or gay. Spicing up her dull life is old girl’s everyday task.
The Old Girl’s Diary is a collection of Stella So’s self-appeasement and a tribute to her master and favourite cat Ting Ting.
Stella So was a graduate from the School of Design of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Her final year project, animation Very Fantastic, was winner of the 8th Hong Kong Independent Short Film Competition in 2002 and was invited to a couple of film festivals abroad. Presented in a Chinese copybook, the animation based itself on the city’s old districts to induce readers’ reverie and expectation to Hong Kong’s culture.
So’s published works include Very Fantastic, City of Powder – The Disappearing Hong Kong, The Old Girl’s Diary, etc. The animation in the music video “Lost” (下落不明) by Hong Kong singer Anthony Wong (黃耀明) and the illustration in Eason Chan (陳奕迅)’s album “Don't Want To Let Go” (不想放手) were created by her. Meanwhile, she worked with brands to create animation advertisements and posters. Her art works can also be found on walls in MTR HKU Station and MTR tickets.
