Carll Cneut (b. 1969) has been one of Flanders’ leading illustrators for years. His illustrations are works of art, each and every one, appealing to the reader’s imagination and creativity. He builds up the colours in layers, with a thin brush, which makes them look warm and weathered. Tradition and innovation are intertwined in his universal world, which appeals to young and old. It is barely possible to keep up with the awards and accolades that Cneut has scooped. His books have been sold in more than 35 countries.
