Children's book update
Busy, busy weeks. Besides learning new tools and techniques I also want to pursue my dream of illustrating my own fairy tale book. I'm working a lot in doing research, thumbnails, sketches, setting the layout with typography, working on the text. I love it!
It makes me happy to work on a creative project by myself. It gives me freedom to make experiments, to illustrate without boundaries. My children's book will be a bilingual fairy tale book of the Brothers Grimm. I want people to learn more about German language, culture and folklore with the deep meaning of fairy tales.
Fairy tales are an important part of my childhood. I learned a lot about values and my fears with the help of fairy tales. I think a bilingual version of these great tales is an opportunity to learn German and more about our great literature that changes the world.
It will still be a lot of work and research. But I do want to realize this project, so I can contribute my talent, culture and ideas for a better bilingual community. Fingers crossed :)
