have been quite busy lately, and happily so. i recently started two new picturebooks, and have been quite swamped with editorial work. sometimes i feel like my body is taking the shape of the chair, if it weren't for the little monkey's regular and pleasant interruptions.
on a personal note, i was recently interviewed by the lovely ladies over at museradio (an online podcast series about creatives and their work). here is the interview (hoping i won't bore the heck out of you with my life story)! photo below by Kat Tan.
here is a big tree illustration i made for my sister when she got married a couple of years ago, which i never photographed.
just got back from two months in australia. we went to melbourne to do a stop motion animation workshop for the state library of victoria (the kids were amazing!)
actually, australia is amazing, and i often wonder why i ever left.
among the general merryment and gallavanting around perth beaches parks and rivers, i also managed to finish a book project and start another, while nina turned one and started walking. great achievements all round.
some illustrations for this year's early harvest magazine.
the magazine is put together and edited by a group of melbourne kids through 100 story building's literacy program.
above is the cover illustration, below are the first pages where the editorial goes.
an illustration i made ages ago for a little girl called Nina, way before my little one was born. But I suppose she was already in my mind. I had forgotten about this til I found it again while sorting some images.
it is available in the print shop.
and for a completely different post from the previous one, a bit of editorial illustration from the past few months:
above, for parent and child magazine, below, waitrose weekend magazine, mit liebe magazine.
in other news, today i got a preview of a documentary for which gianluca and i and a team of brilliant french animators did some animated sequences earlier this year. it will come out soon in italy and i just cannot wait to share it here!
