BLACK/WHITE ILLUSTRATION:

I have so many illustrations to choose from in this category, so I focus on detailed illustrations with lots of texturing and contrast. Only a few simple line drawings are included.

Two particular books: Prinsen som våknet ("The prince that awoke") an illustrated biography telling the life of Buddha (Gautama).

Afgarad, a Somali language-book. It was exciting to illustrate Somalian objects that I never seen in real life, and discover the parallels between Somalian and European fairytales. The Buddha-illustrations required knowledge of how people dressed in India about 2000 years ago, I learned a lot. Press the grey gallery-button to view the illustrations.
