Broken: My Short Stories About Literally And Metaphorically Broken Animals

ADVERTISEMENT

I am Pieter van den Heuvel, a freelance copywriter. On my spare time work as an illustrator.

Inspired by Tim Burton’s short stories and Shaun Tan’s beautiful works I’ve been writing and illustrating books myself. Broken is one of the recent ones.

The book is about broken beings, literally and sometimes metaphorically. I always thought that there is something both sad and cute about animals wearing plaster casts, so I decided to make a story about them. What seems to be an ordinary light-hearted kids’ book, gradually turns into a melancholic story about creatures struggling with broken situation.

It took me about a week to draw all the illustrations and about a month to finish the whole book. It’s completely hand drawn with pencil and colored in with water paint.
