I got hired to do the illustrations for Antboy 1-3 in june 2006.
The writer Kenneth Bøgh Andersen and the editor Christel Amundsen had seen my Superhero theme for kids in Samvirke magazine, and wanted me to illustrate this superhero tale for kids.
It was a long process figuring out the charachters, the style and how the covers should look. Here are some images that shows that process.
The first two books came out in january 2007, and number 3 in april. The books have become a huge succes and will hopefully turn into a new series. I really enjoyed working with Kenneth, that I also have illustrated a horrorstories for kids book since: http://erikpetri.blogspot.com/2007/12/horrorstories-for-kids.html
