The artist and the publisher wanted to make a book about children’s rights, and created a brilliant and colourful book introducing children to the universal rights that they are entitled to under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Between fiction and non-fiction, the book is suitable both for kids and adults.
The artist created this work in response to a text written by a children’s author. The challenge was to draw a character, specifically a dot, that represented kindness. The idea was that kindness would grow as the story unfolded and as more characters within the story performed acts of kindness.
This piece was inspired by the colours and textures of early mid century picture books. The artist recalled these memories, combined with their current illustration style, to create this work.
In this mixture of picture book and graphic novel, Clementina, who lost everything during the war, spends her savings on a silk dress and a one-year pass to travel on first-class trains with the aim of finding a rich husband. She falls in love with traveling instead, turning it into a story of self-knowledge and women empowerment. The text tells her fable, the images show her inner journey.
