- Illustrations and sketches
for my children's book debut
Colour illustrations, pencil drawings and exploratory work for my current project
Making illustrations for children's book's is always something I wanted to do. Now, at age 44 and without experience or the necessary connections, I have finally decided to have a go at it. If at the end I fail to find a publisher, my children will have a very exclusive children's book to read. But if I succeed, I'm hoping it'll be the start of an interesting new career (next to my ongoing career as freelance web/GUI-designer).
It has been ten years since I made a real illustration of any kind. It has been even longer than that since I published short stories in (Belgian) literary magazines. When my career in webdesign took off, I radically stopped doing all such "artistic" activities. But the desire kept gnawing and I figured that if I waited another decade, it would be too late.
Unfortunately I can't let you read the text (it's in Dutch and it's not finished) but please do let me know what you think about the artwork.
Whenever I found the time to create something new, I will update this page.
