My Art & Picture book was successfully funded on Kickstarter on October 31st, 2018 with the help of 197 backers, who I thank dearly for enabling me to finish this passion project!
"Wanderlust, My adventures to where you are" is my first art & picture book. I created 15 ink paintings with paper cut layers, that were scanned professionally to create this hard cover book full of adventure and two whimsical journeys.
history of wanderlust
Since 2017 I've been working on the illustrations for my Art & Story book "Wanderlust". This hardcover book is filled with new whimsical page wide ink paintings that tell a story of friendship and courage without the use of words.
In October 2018 I launched a Kickstarter campaign to try and realise the last illustrations and printing of the book through crowdfunding. Everyone to support me with a pledge, was able to choose their own reward tier, of course including the book and other exclusive goodies.

About the book
My illustrations often revolve around little animal friends traveling from point A to B using some kind of whimsical transportation. Walking the tightrope, riding a fluffy kitten, flying amidst butterflies, or sailing aboard the a paper boat. For my book Wanderlust, I have recreated these illustrations and I also added new adventures. I used ink and paper cut layers in an intricate manner to showcase my current work and style. While every illustration is a mini adventure on its own, both tiny characters Isabella and Oliver embark upon a grand adventure to find their way to each other. Isabella’s journey forms part one of the book. Oliver’s travels make up the second part.
The question that remains is; will they meet each other half way?
