    Wanderkönig is a hand-lettering and illustration artwork dedicated to the ambitious wanderer and appreciator of nature.
Over a year ago my dearest friend left for a one year journey to Japan. To celebrate his upcoming adventure we went on a trip to our most favorite forest, where he proudly told me about an award he received as a child for his performance as the best wanderer in class.
I created this illustration to remind him of the happy-go-lucky days when school trips were the most joyful happenings and to honor his more recent accomplishment.

This illustration pictures the usual German mixed coniferous forest and was created with color pencil on 30x30cm paper.
