How do you feel today?
is a series of illustrations about moods and emotions. Moods and emotions can be big, extreme and very difficult to grasp and understand and the illustrations works as a starting point for conversations between adults and children. The illustrations stimulate children’s ability to understand and put into words, how they are feeling and they give the adult a tool to help the children process their emotions.
The visual concept
To express human emotions I have worked with the weather as a metaphor. Like moods and emotions it is not a permanent condition, it represents the volatility in feelings. The change in seasons is a natural cycle; like our emotions, they pass and return.
