A map of the island / by Barbara Dziadosz

Some months ago Huw approached me to illustrate an imaginary island. An island of my dreams. I remember drawing tiny isolated lonely islands with palms and a parasol surrounded by dolphins and a huge sun somewhere as a kid. When I started gathering ideas for this one, I kept some of my childhood dreams and added some other aspects to it and left some parts away. Loneliness seemed much more of a threat than dream, so I populated my island (called Kraina) with some inhabitants (humans and animals), added some cultural aspects like buildings and of course lots of plants. Voilà!
