I Musikanti di Amberyn

In Books on February 26, 2008 at 6:45 pm

The last couple of weeks I’ve been working on an illustration of another GM Willo book: I Musikanti di Amberyn. It’s a children’s book about the land of Amberyn which reminds a lot of Holland. The land is occupied with mostly sailer men and musicians who use their instruments to make magic. Some of them search new ways of making music in order to create more powerful magic. This leads to many adventures. I Musikanti di Amberyn is not just about good en bad but more about making wise choices in life. On you’ll be able to find more information about the book.

For Valentine’s day, my colleagues and I decided to surprise some people. With the help of the company I work for, we ordered special Valentine chocolates. Together with a special designed card by Kartworks we were able to deliver a very personal massage.

We, and the chocolate, were welcomed with warm smiles!

The new IKEA magazine inspired me to illustrate a somewhat ‘Nordic’ girl. Of course she only wanted to be portrayed together with her very special friend.

After illustrating some stories, I discovered to really enjoy making illustrations of children. Together with one of my favorite subjects ‘animals’ and slightly inspired by ‘The Jungle Book’, I came up with this!
