Axolotl Illustration

The illustrations in "Do You Want to Help Axis to Dare?" are thoughtfully designed to reflect Axis's emotional journey. Using vibrant scenes where the colors of the surroundings symbolize Axis's feelings, the book visually represents the transition from anxiety to calmness. When Axis feels uneasy, the environment around him becomes darker, visually depicting his fear. As he learns to relax and embrace courage, the scenery shifts to light and harmonious colors, mirroring his newfound tranquility.

Employing vector graphics combined with digital brushes, the illustrations are lively and colorful, inviting readers into the underwater world of the axolotl. This artistic approach not only captures the essence of the story but also educates about the axolotl's natural habitat, diet, and lifestyle. The book’s visual narrative complements its aim to provide children with a practical relaxation tool while simultaneously broadening their knowledge about this unique aquatic creature.
