KEEP THE INNER CHILD ALIVE

KEEP THE INNER CHILD ALIVE

I think it’s important to try and hold the idea of a child’s free soul close to you and never let it go. Children are so pure and free – they see beauty in the smallest of things, and they live fully in the moment; they are not concerned with how they are seen by others and this gives them great freedom.

Jokamin awarded the best product at the Glucksman Craft & Design Fair 2019!!!

Commissioned illustration for Image magazine

Commissioned illustration for Image magazine

I had the pleasure to be asked to illustrate an article for Image magazine about mother and daughter relationship. Fiona Hyde writes about how the relationship with our mothers changes and how it is perceived through the time.  I loved working on it and I think I was able to achieve the feeling of time passing.   Available here as a giclee print:  https://jokamin.com/collections/love/products/in-my-heart
