I love to illustrate book covers and stories. I also like to make fun free-standing illustrations like the beagle-bagel. To illustrate is to give more information and I highly respect illustrators, such as Quentin Blake (Roald Dahl books) and Alan Lee (Lord of the Rings), because they have the remarkable talent of transforming the imaginary into the visual. When you visualise a book, you have to be aware of the possible changes a character may go through, and most of all, your visualisations need to add something to the story, rather than distract or confuse the reader. Visualising a book is a joy and I love that journey. In this section, you will find samples of my book covers, books, and my freestyle fantasy ones. Some are also available as prints.
I would love to make work for you! Contact me for commissions at karinmerx at gmail.com
