KCR is an organisation in Rotterdam that gets children acquainted with art and culture. Over a period of four years, they linked seven cultural organisations to seven elementary schools. They asked me to illustrate a cover for each project. All seven covers show a different child looking into a diorama, showing the project their school has been working on. For example take the kid with the yellow background: At this school they worked with a dance theater company and created a show called ‘Bloom’. It was a metaphor for blossoming through the art of dance: the diorama shows plants growing and children jumping up from behind them. Every book also contains four articles, for which I illustrated a series of spot illustrations showing the same kid that’s on the cover.
