The first illustration I made for “Science stories for kids” on Character Publishing was this watercolor drawing depicting William discovering a box of telescope lenses.
The book is a story about William and his aunt Gunvor (a coincidence her being my name sister) who is an astro physisist. Through her, and all the reserach equipment and boxes in her house, Williams learns to question and discover the history of science.
I made the illustrations and general layout, with final typo for the story set by a different designer.
