»Samurai’s Visual Journal«, a webcomic I began when my son was born, is an exercise in seeing the world from his perspective, but also in seeing myself as a mother from a more detached angle, where I am impartial and free from personal anxiety.
This 8 year project is now out in bookshops as “A Child’s Journey”, published by JaJa Verlag! The stories are scenes that happen in everyday life, which are sometimes freely, and other times very faithfully reinterpreted. Some have been sketched on the go, others have taken days of work.
