The Quibbler, marketed as The Wizarding World’s Alternative Voice, is a wizarding tabloid [… that] publishes odd articles, including conspiracy theories and discussions of imaginary creatures […].

As a personal project close to my heart I illustrade articles for the lovely Quibbler. All of those fantastically written texts come from fans of the francise and I aim to underline the enthusiasm and love that went into them.
I went with a comic design and digital drawing for this article which is a bit of an unusual for me. The goose is always front and center, contrasted with yellow tones against blue backgrounds.
Once again trying something rather new for me: vector art. I went for a simple design to achieve a sort of real estate catalogue look.
Additionally to illustrating, I’m also doing the layout for many articles in my role as production assistant. This is the perfect playground for me to get as creative as I like with InDesign. I’ve already learned so much but I’m looking forward to many more magical layouts.
