My name is Natalia Romankova and I am studying the follow on course to the Children Illustration Diploma. I’ve not finished the follow-up course, but I had a few respectful reasons! Almost a year ago our family welcomed a new baby and now I’m a mom of 3 girls. Also in December 2017 a book with my illustrations was published. Within 2 weeks it became a bestseller on the most popular Russian book seller site.
The name of the book is “Asta, the hurricane. Geographic adventures”. It is about a girl named Asta who can travel with the wind. A wind takes the girl and moves her to another country where a girl or a boy is in need of help. Asta helps and then a wind returns her back. It is a set of short stories welcoming a young reader to the geography – mainlands, counties and their capitals, oceans etc.
Id like to take this opportunity to thank Maggy very much for her comments and help! It has really changed my life.
