Manon Sikkel, writer Izzy Love:

'I've been a children’s book writer for ten years. Writing is all about imagination. Finding someone who would understand my imaginary world has been quite a challenge. One day I saw Marenthe's Flow Magazine cover and I knew I had found my illustrator. One of my favourite collaborations has been with Marenthe. I just love her work. And I'm not the only one. The book cover she illustrated was the seventh in a series. And it certainly is the most beautiful. The book just got nominated for a prestigious fiction prize. All because of that beautiful cover Marenthe made'.

Marenthe designed the front cover of a colouring book. The assignment was set at Lilla Rogers' design Bootcamp. Originally asked to draw 1920s hairstyles and faces, the group were then tasked with incorporating their design into a colouring book | self-initiated project for Make Art that Sells
