How were your illustrations used? :
Book inside or spot illustration/s, Experimentation

How did you make this work:
The illustrations show the psychological duality of a tale, the narration of which is distributed along two main lines: magical and realistic. Therefore black paper wasn’t chosen accidently for this book, as the main plot is about a connection of hidden underground world and the real one. All the illustrations are done by hand on paper and later on digitized on computer.
