I was asked by Oak & Morrow to participate in one of their projects; creating a cover for the ADCN yearbook 2014. They wanted to make a book that shows its emotions. See how they did that in this video.
A little background info on my illustration: the original drawing was so friendly and sweet (and actually not monster-ish at all) that I couldn’t resist creating a cute, smiling monster that only has a little bit of evil inside of her. She might destroy the cars she lifted, but she might also just be playing with them and put them back safely when she’s finished. Who knows… The background is just an imaginary town that I created to brighten up the illustration, 'cause I am not good with white backgrounds ;)
Storytime Magazine is a UK kids’ magazine full of brilliant stories. It’s packed with fairy tales, myths, poems, and much more – all beautifully written and illustrated, with puzzles, games and colouring in too!
I was asked by Travesías Magazine to create 5 illustrations for an article about a boat trip along the Mekong River in Cambodia (organized by Aqua Expeditions). I had to illustrate the 5 highlights of this trip: the Cambodian rice fields, the archaeological temple complex called 'Angkor', the boat itself, the bird watching trip and the water villages.
It was a real challenge to try to capture the culture of Cambodia in my illustrations, but I am so happy with the results! I really focused on using the right color schemes and portraying the Cambodian life as it is (with just a little extra romance added to it). I was even more happy to hear that Travesías Magazine really liked my illustrations, and that they wanted to use one of them for the magazine cover! How cool is that? So thankful for this wonderful collaboration.
