What an awesome project this was! Plint asked me to illustrate a whole magazine filled with poems for children from 6-106. Which made for this dreamy, soft and sweet world, built from paper, spices and rocks.

Sadako Sasaki was a Japanese girl who was two years old when an American atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, near her home. She is remembered through the story of the one thousand origami cranes she tried to fold before her death, and is a symbol of the innocent victims of nuclear warfare. Oh Comely asked me to illustrate their article about Sadako and make instructions to fold your own cranes. Tricky one, because of Japan's rich tradition in paper craft. I didn't want the illustration to look traditional, but refer to these beautiful traditions in a more modern way.
