Illustrations for a Children’s book
I am illustrating a book that a friend has written. She has translated the story The Velveteen Rabbit into Danish. The story was written one hundred years ago by Margery Williams, and my friend has updated the story to our time. The story, relevant and meaningful, shows us what it means to be real.
In our version we call the rabbit Elmer and the title is Tøjkaninen which literally means The Plush Rabbit. Our goal is to publish the book later this year to also recognize the one hundred year anniversary. I am honored to create illustrations for the book and have decided to keep my images simple and colorful. My media are graphite, pastels, and collage.
Here are some illustrations:
