Inspiration book: “Alle dagen Dromen”

The last fantasy event I visited I saw a lot of inspiring things. One of the stalls was a stall with books, mostly with comic books. One of the brand was Sylvester. They have comic books with awesome illustration styles. Els Deckers, a dutch illustrator, was with that stall and showed her portfolio. She has a book ‘Alle dagen dromen’, translated  ‘Always DayDreaming’. It is a book about a girl with congenital mental illness. I bought this book.

Her style is colorfull and I think it has something dreamy. Light and dark vary and the foxes  that she draws are very cute. I will show you a few pages of the book for an impresssion:

When I look at her website I see she makes work in different styles. I like to see that. Not everything she makes has the same style and I think it’s cool and challenging to vary in style. Maybe one dat I must give it a try. Try to do something completely different in my illustrationstyle and see if I can make it ‘mine’. Who knowes…
