I saw a lot of my work in print today! Firstly this book arrived! It's the thesis of Jasmijn Rana
who did research about kickboxing Moroccan girls. It turned into a big project under the name
of Chicks, Kicks & Glory, with a comic exhibition, dance performances* and now a book!
I drew a story about Nadia, who dreams of ballet but finally founds out that kickboxing has
that girly pink side as well. I enjoyed working in a more realistic and collage style.
Then I got these papers from my publisher, who promoted my books on a book fair in China!
So is this how my name is written in Chinese??!
Then I went to the supermarket and bumped into this big display with my illustration on it!
My boyfriend's hand was so proud to see the result of his first model job! ;-)
*) The Chicks, Kicks & Glory exhibition and dance performance can be seen on De Parade
in Amsterdam from August 5th to 9th.
