For the third volume of the saga of Olga di Carta, I could use colour again.
The brief asked for 12 colour illustrations, dedicated to 4 different parts of the book.
In this volume, the narrator – young Olga – entertains and reassures her friends during a trip on the mountain by their village. Olga tells the story of Misteriosa, a girl like many others, that sometimes finds her escape in drawings, paintings and everyday objects.
I decided to separate the narrative in three parts:
Olga and her friends on the mountain
The world of Misteriosa
Each part has been approached in a slightly different way, still keeping a consistent style and colour palette.
