Illustrations by Maria Giemza for children’s book Nieustraszony Strach na Wróble.
Based in Berlin, Germany, Maria Giemza is a freelance illustrator specializing in various projects ranging from editorial work up to personal artworks. She recently suggested me to check out her portfolio and I have to admit that I was overwhelmed by the abundance of eye-catching illustrations. It wasn’t easy to pick only one project for a feature but in the end, I decided to show you these lovely illustrations she made for a children’s book named ‘Nieustraszony Strach na Wróble’. The book was published by Wydawnictwo Zielona Sowa and printed in a series of 40,000 copies.
“I was really lucky to be chosen the winner of ‘Piórko 2017’ competition dedicated to illustrators, to illustrate a children’s book written by Grzegorz Majchrowski. It is a heartwarming story of a Scarecrow and his little friend—house sparrow, who find themselves in an adventurous trip helping out another bird fella. Along their journey through the countryside, they are figuring out the ins and outs of how nature and seasons work, as well as learn about the power of a friendship.” — Maria Giemza
