"Allt berättar" was my graduation project from Konstfack in 2015. In four illustrated books, I was exploring ways to work with the components of an illustrated book, to examine the creative process and to let the components be integral in the storytelling.

 

Liten (Small)
A book where I use the format to amplify the story -  about a small person who is hiding in a small space, and finds her self shrinking. 

 
  She was hiding although she was so small she was barely visible

Once upon a time, there was a small one.

  How come there wasn't enough space for such a small person?

Ett två tre (One two three)
A book using ink drawings as a starting point of creating a story.

When I kept adding pictures and words, it turned out as a surreal story about a person going out to the woods, to dig her self up from the ground, over and over again. 

 
 

Öppna (Open) 

In this book I tried to make the flickering of the pages play a role in the storytelling. When the character in the book opens the window, we also turn the page, and the story takes a new turn. 

 
 

Allt är som vanligt (Everything is as usual) 

A book in which I wanted to experiment with the relation between text and image, and how we value read them.  The story tells about a meeting between two people. The text has one message, the image another. Which of them should we trust?
