French kids publication - Bonbek - recently commissioned me to illustrate a story in volume 3 of their magazine. The bilingual magazine's strap line " the magazine for kids that makes parents jealous" is true to it's word as the mag is full of great illustrated stories and games for kids that any design conscious adult will also love. My story covers an epic 10 double page spreads and follows the adventures of a little girl 'Soupolé' who wants to find out why she is named after 'milk soup'! I'm really pleased with the way this project turned out and hope to pursue some more kids story ideas in future... watch this space! You can see some of the spreads belowalong with detailed shots. To preview the mag you can check out Volume 3 on issuu & the full printed magazine is available to buy now - get it here!
