Children's Publishing

Un-commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
Master project for my graduation at University Of Applied Sciences Hamburg, germany. I wanted to explore and push the boundaries of hidden picture books combined with a fresh take on children’s books by showing the same bench and crossroads through different times. I wanted to show the small things of life that are always there and needed, but unnoticed.

How was the illustration used:
not yet published, selected for the Bologna Children's Book Fair annual 2020, intended to be published as a book
