Last year I got asked by Aww magazine if I would like to be part of their 4th issue called "Time Capsule" where illustrators all around the world are invited to share their stories about how they cope with lockdown and talk about the people they need. I was very happy to be able to share my story and artwork next to all those wonderful artists! Because of shipping issues it took many month until I was able to hold the magazine in my hands.
I will share my little story with you here:
I was thirteen years old when my sister Jana was born. A big age difference for siblings. I held her in my arms and at times it felt more like she was my child than my sister, but as the years went by, the age difference seemed to disappear more and more and our relationship grew into a deep friendship. Being with her feels safe. We are able to complete each others sentences when finding no words. In a world full of rush and pressure we are creating our own freedom from within and step into a world of amazement, experiments and little adventures. There is no need for harsh words or tight robes in a world full of wildflowers, singing tree sponges and pheasant visits. At least in our opinion. And that’s why she is one of my people I need.
