Project: Shortly after creating some illustrations for their media-kit, Ozeankind e.V. approached me with a new idea for a collaboration. It turned out to be my biggest commission so far.
Ozeankind e.V. wanted to self-publish a book for kids, that would explain the plastic problem our world is facing.
Educating the younger generation about environmental issues is one of the most important steps towards a healthier planet. So in this fun book they explain in easy, entertaining language:
What is plastic? Where does it come from? What types of plastics are there? What is it good (or bad) for? Why is there so much of it, and why is that bad news for the ocean? 
Most importantly though: What can we do about it?!
The first script I got of this awesome book - or: workbook - was already full of information and interactive games and quizzes, which are not only educational for the younger generation.
It was my job to create a few illustrations and a nice cover image.
But I was so excited about the project, that I offered to take over the whole graphic design process, from layout to print, and ended up drawing illustrations for almost every page...
I guess when you're passionate about your work and the topic at hand is something you totally stand behind, giving a few hundred extra-percent is inevitable. ;)
