To write this book about Jesus’ parables, I read all of them from the adult-version of the Bible and had many doubts about which one should I choose for the book because I liked them all so much. I decided to put some of them in a book and left the others for a sequel. The creativity, the way of telling the parables that Jesus had told are a real treasure. To illustrate, I drew everything with a water-soluble colored pencil. After, I painted with acrylic paint and used soft pastels for the backgrounds and some objects and character details.

This book’s illustrations were selected for the Illustration Exhibition and the 24th “Biennial Illustrations of Bratislava” catalogue, in Bratislava, Slovakia (2013).
