ARTIST STATEMENT

  • My books combine reality and fantasy and sometimes it is difficult to identify where the limits are. My illustrations are anyhow quite simple. Either insinuated backgrounds in pencil while the main characters are worked in full color or the other way around,black and white with a few colorful details in the background. Mainly I work with pencils or inkt.
