Cover Reveal for Snail and Worm by Tina Kügler

Snail and Worm is a very different project. It is three easy-reader stories collected in a picture book format. It is a quiet little book with silly stories about two friends and their very small adventures. I was thinking about the quiet, shy kids who still like to be silly, if you just sit close and listen to them.
I made the illustrations with acrylic paint on paper, combined with vintage papers, and digital media.
