“Le cueilleur d’étoile” (The Star Picker) is an illustrated children book depicting a lonely musician, living in a music-box, leaving his world for the love of a star with the desire to capture her. This book has been written as an initiatory tale, talking about love, belonging, respect and self-accomplishment.
We created this book with a friend of mine, her putting the story into words as I was translating it with pictures.
You will find below early artworks of few of the 50 final illustrations of the final book that I drew to help create the world, the atmosphere and the story as we were moving forward with its creation.
