I've been busy these last months. So I'm really ready to abandon my desk and leave for vacation, but before I do this, I want to show you another book I did illustrations for. It came out this month too and I like it very much. It's »Bulle und Pelle«, published by Gabriel.
It's about Bulle, a little boy, whose rabbit dies and Bulle wonders where he has gone now that he is dead. And so he goes on a little journey during which he meets different people to get an answer. It's a really touching story and I'm happy with the outcome. I especially like the cover, since it turned out exactly like the inner picture I had in mind when I read the manuscript. Here is a more detailed synopsis.

  3. Thank you both! @ Laura: Mostly I draw the outlines, scan them in and then do the colour in Photoshop. There it's often a wild layering (multiplied colour and shadow layers, sometimes with scanned-in textures etc.). I think, I will do a process post sometime, but right now I'm packing for vacation *dummdidumm* ;)
