When Caterpillar Became a Butterfly (Toen Rups een vlinder werd)
The stimulating poems and stories are being alternated with full page illustrations that continue Butterfly’s journey. I used a big range of different materials to create the structures for this illustrations. Examples are ecoline, ink, paint, sand, coffee and dried leaves. Check out my Instagram for more content about my illustration process.

She has no time to join him in waiting, because she just started the only dag in her life. Once emerged from his cocoon, Butterfly eagerly wants to show his beauty. But where has Mayfly gone? Follow Butterfly on his adventure through the garden and past its colorful insects.
