She believed she could, so she did
For this year I want to start a bigger and bolder illustration project. I want to illustrate a fairytale book by my own. I need to prepare text material, making the illustrations (I just finished 2 yet) and keep motivating myself. It will be a lot of work and it is a big responsibiltytowards myself.
Is this project for an important client? No. This project is a personal dream I have. Since I started studying Illustration and Design I always imagined to just start making a book on my own. Just for fun and how I imagine. I was thinking about the concept now for 2 years and I have the feeling right now is the perfect time to start this huge project.
I illustrated children's books and fairytales before but never a project where I allow myself to have more time. It will be hard work but I just can't resist to just follow my dreams. I know there is something with this project that will teach so much more about my creative work. I'm excited about what will happen, how I will change with this book, and how this project is going to be. I want to update some "behind the scenes" entries on regular basis about it and share the process.
Fingers crossed ;) I will do my best to realize my vision. Not for money, not for fame, not for anybody but just for me as an artist.
