Kleine wijze wolf
tekst: Gijs van der Hammen
Hoogland & Van Klaveren, 2017

‘Little Wolf’s journey really feels epic and there are some impressive techniques used by the illustrator to set this scene. Liquid light shines out from the pages that are covered in a rich purple black. You can almost taste the ink on the pages. [...] The artworks are a multi-media feast. Watercolour and masking fluid are carefully applied using gouache for opacity when necessary.’
