Little blue fear

Text and Illustrations from Valentine Laffitte

While a storm tears up the sky and the wind makes plants decrepit, Amos, frightened, watches this huge turmoil from her window.

Terrified, she suddenly notices something on her stomach. A little blue ball. A little blue fear. As she shakes with fear and with cold, Amos takes care of herself. She has something to eat, warms up, tucks herself in.

Little by little, the dialogue forms and Amos tames her little, almighty fear. The next day, when Amos wakes up, she leaves by leaving a note. A beautiful day has begun.

Valentine Laffitte

Valentine Laffitte is a young French illustrator living in Brussels. She studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels. She regularly exhibits her work and holds workshops for children. Her work is typified by cut paper collages. She paints large sheets of paper, creating finely nuanced colours and then cuts them into different shapes and brings them together in a collage. Both her two-dimensional and three-dimensional works give a sense of depth and volume. In her book she cleverly brings together text and image.
