Authors, Illustrators

Marie G. Rhode

I grew up in Sweden, surrounded by books, fabrics, artist’s materials, and a subscription to the Puffin Post. My family was early adopters of reducing, reusing, and recycling.

When studying architecture, I realised that I enjoyed more imagining/ illustrating life within the projects than actually finishing them. After presenting my diploma, I switched to illustration and textile print design with all the ups and downs of being freelance. I relocated to Barcelona after an exchange year, that left me spellbound by the cultural life.

Some years ago, I had an idea for a book. A life of different studies and interests came together in “Planet SOS” once I managed to fight off all my doubts about being able to pull it through.
