In 2016 I illustrated the famous novel War Horse which was written by Michael Morpurgo. The illustrations are drawn from the horses' perspective. I played with reflection in a river and in a rain puddle to show the main characters together. The illustration on the right shows a page of a sketchbook in which the horse's glory has been studied.
The drawings were created traditionally with pencil on paper. I decided to have them monochrome to reflect the mood and time in which the story took place.
Festival magazine cover competition
In November 2015 I took part of the Buxton Fringe Festival illustration competition. My artwork shows a little girl with accessories matching to the festival theme.
I drew her a fringe and a happy face impression to communicate the excitement at the festival. In her hair are different accessories each represents a different art from which will be shown at the festival.
Emil and the detectives by Erich Kästner
I took part of the Penguin readers children´s book cover competition. This year task was to design the book cover to Emil and the detectives by Erich Kästner. My idea was to include the title and text in a newspaper. Through little holes you can see curious children eyes.
