Birgit-sequence by BeatrizMartinVidal Birgit-sequence by BeatrizMartinVidal
Complete sequence for "Birgit".
Birgit s a short novel by Gudrun Mebs. It's the story of a girl's illness and death told by her little sister. The narrator is very young and she doesn't really understand what's happening.
It's a hard story but the point of view makes it very interesting and it softens a little the sadness of it.

I've just remebered I've never submitted the entire sequence, so, here it is.

If you want to know a little more about the process, you can look in my blog:

Pencil, gouache, and white chalk.

This is so hauntingly beautiful and poignant - once again I could see the story just from your illustration, before I read the description.  It's a very sad, thought-provoking piece.  I'll try to search the book out, it sounds interesting!

This is really nice but also a bit sad for someone so young to experience this. You did very well with capturing the range of emotions.
