“Love is …” is a 20 by 20 centimeter hardcover book including 20 lovely illustrations, that are created by Anika Preiser (aka blocksi) with the emphasis to give the love of her life, her best friend and also her muse something back. Before starting with the illustrations Anika got inspired by a greeting card of Jen Shults. But the book itself is mainly inspired by the artworks of New Zeeland cartoonist Kim Casali, who is the creator of the original “Love is …” comic strip. Anika came across Kim’s drawings during some conceptual researches. – So besides the very personal aspect the book is also a kind of tribute to Kim.
Blocksi Design is a side project and shows the heart and soul of Anika Preiser, a German illustrator and multimedia artist, who is mainly focused on illustrating and sometimes also animating cute and lovely looking graphics and characters. Always attaching great importance to the little details. Her artworks are not only published online but also in printed outcomes such as books, greeting cards, shirts and many more.
