"Sometimes Jonas is a lion" is a book by the german
childrens book writer Kirsten Boie, and I´m doing
an illustration for it. I wasn´t familiar with her work before
reading this one but it´s very sensitive and it
gave me an astounding feeling of what it
was like to be a young kid.
Right now this boy looks pretty girlish,
but on the other hand I think it´s more interesting
to have it more ambivalent, since this book
speaks to and about kids in general and not just boys.
(More regular viewers might recall this face from
an older illustration, but well, this has to be done soon
so I do some light recycling again...)
