For over a year I illustrated Katja Jungwirth’s blog entries with drawings of rabbits and other animals. In the stories she describes the joys and difficulties of taking care of her chronically ill mother. I was very fortunate that Kremayr & Scheriau not only showed interest in the narrative but also liked my illustrations. They decided to put each drawing in the beginning of the story and even put my little walker on the cover. The name of the blog “Nichts für Angsthasen” (literally translated: nothing for scared rabbits – meaning: nothing for scaredy-cats) changed for the book, but the illustrations stayed.
