I have been working with Adam for 1 year and half. We have made about 18 books together (I am working on our 19th right now).
It was scary to just throw myself into this freelancing work without any experience, I honestly have never really worked before. I’m coming straight from my graduation into this wonderful (and crazy roller coaster ride like ) world of freelancing.
I love it.
Sometimes I hate it, but who doesn’t have days where they say to themselves “I’m tired of this crap and I want to quit”. But in the end, when I look back at all the illustration I made, the progress I made.. I love what I do and I do it with love.
And all this leads to this illustration, one of my favorites. It’s from our first book together the story speaks to me on so many levels. It’s about a clumsy kid that’s lost in a magical forest, every time that it seems that only bad luck hits the kid, he (or she?) discovers something amazing.
I see this story as a little push in the back, don’t be scared even if you are lost you will eventually get there. But meanwhile enjoy the little things that you will find on your way while dwelling in the metaphorical forest of yours ;)
This book has been printed and will be (hopefully) soon available for sale, meanwhile you can find it on Amazon in a kindle format if you are interested: I Was Running Through the Forest
