I have been doing some house cleaning and found my illustrations, made when being a student and attending the Faculty...many years ago.
So, before replacing them in the closet, I made some pics of them and uploaded them to my Flickr . This children book was part of my diploma work, as I got my master degree in graphics(printing) and illustration.
I don't have the originals anymore, as it is the property of the faculty, but I have kept one sample/model of how it would be, when/if printed and published....The poem was written by one old friend of my father and it talks about the fire fly who lost its lantern. I wanted it to be a 3D book, partly pop-up book, partly something that could be a space(making the borders, when totally open) for kids to play within. I also had the idea to make the puppets, like the main characters from the book. It was made in 1998. It was supposed to be published and I made a few conversations with some publishers, but than, due to the Nato aggression, it all remained uncompleted and therefore, unpublished:(
The other illustrations, those to follow, were created in 1996., they are also collages, inspired by the Never ending story , my favourite childhood book.
If you haven't read the book yet, you just have to, the kids will also love it. So great as the summer reading with kids:)
