When I saw Heiko‘s works for the first time I couldn’t decide whether to publish them here or not. After some time, I’ve realized that I was just playing too serious and as a consequence I was searching for serious looking stuff too. And then there was Heiko who managed to knock down this prejudice. It even made me smile a little bit: it was a smile of a kid who is thumbing through his favorite book.
Put off that absurd snob mask of yours finally, make yourself comfortable, make a cup of cacao, turn off that drumm’n’bass or whatever you’re listening to at the moment and put on something more melancholic. Feel the cosiness of that childhood world when your parents sometimes used to leave you at home alone for one night. These illustrations are perfect for an evening like this. View them with a kid’s smile while snuggling with your sweetheart and you’ll probably reminisce something beautiful from your childhood. I myself soon recalled books which were the most precious to me as a kid.
So, be more natural.
