This is the latest illustration I was commissioned to create, for the bedroom of a baby girl.
The baby’s name is Maria, so I kept thinking about Mary Lennox from The Secret Garden, one of my favourite characters in children’s literature. She has a bit of a temper and a mind of her own, but she is also imaginative and has a kind heart. The end of the book is gorgeous so I thought that Mary and the garden were the perfect inspiration for this drawing.
I hope baby Maria likes her illustration! :0)
Some time ago I was commissioned to create illustrations for LA-based children fashion label Kidzmoon. I was asked to develop six illustrations for their new collection.
It was such a fun and delightful project, one of the best I have ever done. Here are the characters and designs I produced and their initial sketches:
The Rio Chick
The Tokyo Boy
There are still tons of potential characters and designs to be created, so I have the feeling that this will be an ongoing project. The Kidzmoon team is wonderful and the illustrators working on the other collections are a truly talented bunch!
Here are some t-shirt samples:

I love the panels of my Tokyo Boy and Italian Girl on the left hand side. CUTE!
And some gorgeous models. :0)
This was a happy project. I’m very proud of how everything turned out and can’t wait to draw more!
Lots of love from Switzerland.
