Still looking for Richard


Richard is the main character in a lovely story that was sent to me by the Italian publisher Topipittori. They want me to illustrate this story, so I'm trying things out. It has been a lot of trying and not so much making lately. It is the best part of creating I think. When everything is still possible. I haven't found Richard yet or maybe he just hasn't introduced himself.

I'm very happy and honored about they asking me. They have many talented illustrators on their list.

Camilla, thank you so much for this!
It's really nice (and reassuring) to know that even great artists like yourself sometimes take days working on an idea. All your Richards look cute to me :)
