My next big project is illustrating a children’s book! I’ve been working on it for a while now and I didn’t know I would love it so much. This might be the best project so far. Very different from all the other things I’ve done. So much more creative I think. I’m making up characters and creating landscapes that don’t excist. All very exciting.
In this book you’ll make a journey through space in a rocketship, accompanied by Maud the astronaut and Laika the robot dog. You’ll land on all sorts of weird and beautiful planets, meet strange creatures and solve quests.
Laika the dog is like a Swiss knife. Every tool you need pops out of het body instantly. She (I think she’s a she) is one of the main characters and that’s why I started with sketching her.
