"The Birthday" Book illustration

These images were created as part an illustrated book of the short story “The Birthday” by Slawomir Mrozek. The book had a total of 34 illustrated double pages. The illustrations were created using lino cut prints which were later scanned and digitally altered in Photoshop to create a dark atmosphere.

This project was created during my Erasmus semester at the Jan Matejko academy of Fine Arts in Cracow, Poland.

She studies illustration at Münster School of Design (Germany) and spent one glorious semester at Jan Matejko Academy in Cracow (Poland) studying print making. Her work is influenced by traditional printmaking techniques and paper collage combined with digital editing. She is inspired by the everyday, which she captures in her sketchbook.
