Why this work

“Being fascinated for years by children’s books and the wide variety of gorgeous illustrations to be admired within them, I did not hesitate and chose the BFG by Roald Dahl. Not only was he a giant story teller for children, but up to this day, people of all ages adore that typical atmosphere that brings us back to the days when we enjoyed a universe of fantasy.”
“In addition, as a daughter of a printer I acquired at a fairly young age a love for paper (it’s texture and smell!), and the many creative ways of using it.” “Building up an illustration as a complete set in a cardboard box, the aim is to end up with a composition in which the shadow is nearly equally important as the actual characters.”
“I’m thrilled to have been given the opportunity to create my poster and hereby honouring this splendid Dahl masterpiece.”
