Illustrarium, part 2

A few more Lithuanian gems before we move on to other artists, other lands

 Ula Šimulynaitė, who created these four illustrations for Kotons in Paris in 2010,
says "when I’m creating illustrations, I look at the world and try to imagine it as if still being a child.
 And I always hope that the reader will discover and recognize a part of himself in the works I create". 
For sure, as a child I would have adored these, and I still love them...
