Birgit - Cover

Cover for Birgit.

Birgit is a incredibly sad, delicate, powerful story about a little girl whose sister is dying from brain cancer. She relates the facts, her thoughts and her feelings with an honest, not sentimental innocence as she tries to understand what death means. The illustrations build a sequence showing the progression of the illness.

Pencil, white chalk and gouache on grey BFK Rives.
