Über das Buch
Hi, my name is Nadine and I am an artist, children’s book illustrator, and author from Germany, currently based near Duesseldorf. I love to create my drawings with mixed media, like ink, watercolor, gouache, oil, colored pencils, chalk, soft painting pastels, etc. Already as a child, I was enthusiastic about picture books and stories which inspire me until today. Thus, in 2017, my idea of the “Surfing Animals Club” story was born, for which I illustrate lovely individual characters. “GASTON and PHILIPPE – How a duck taught a fox to surf” is my first picture book of the SURFING ANIMALS CLUB for which I planned a book series with all the adventures of these little surfing dudes. Through the SURFING ANIMALS CLUB, I like to convey a happy, innocent, dreamy, and easy mood to the people’s everyday life so that they can dive into the lovely world of these adorable characters.
