Book cover for Literature in the classroom
Posted 11 months ago and submitted by Nicolene Louw | Share link:


I recently did an illustration for a cover of a book called “Literature in the classroom” by a South African educational publisher. The client was very specific about what they wanted and all interest groups (teachers and children of all races and levels of disability) had to be visually represented. Although this was quite a challenge, I was pleased with the end result.

"Nicolene has displayed remarkable sensitivity to conjure up stories of honest, interesting, cheerful people, true to their unique culture and context - even though the culture and context is quite different from the artists's own. Through line, colour, character and visual narrative, she's assisted our Community Relations team in northern Mozambique to initiate personal dialogue with rural communities around their involvement and role in the development of a natural resource mega-project. Thumbs up and appreciation to a storyteller of note!"
