Logical Colour

How many children’s books do you get to the end of and want to turn straight back to the beginning? It might be a nightly occurrence for your children, but what about you? Amsterdam based graphic designer Rop van Mierlo manages to achieve that child-like eagerness within big folk too with his colourful books...

Every time we read them, we are left wanting more. Inside there are no words, just beautiful colourful paintings of animals created by Mierlo’s free-spirited wet-on-wet painting style.

Remarkably every one of the fuzzy watercolour outlines is completely recognisable as their intended character. A hissing snake, a stalking tiger and a big starring bear… these are just a few of the wild animals you will discover when flicking through either of his charming books Wild Animals and Some Logic.
