We were asked to illustrate our own story. 'The Island of Tulips' is my very first short story. It is about an old man who lives in his own soul island without realizing and has just one friend -imaginary deer which helps the main character to open his eyes and see the reality. These are 2 from 4 watercolour illustrations.
