Descripción: The illustration depicts a common Slovenian amphibian the yellow-bellied toad (Bombina variegata), and shows its life cycle. Usually these are shown in separate informative illustrations, but I wanted to show the life cycle of the toad in a different way, in the form of a story, a snippet from the life of this tiny animal, its story in its habitat. The illustration was created as part of the project Morostig – House of Nature and Piles, which explores and presents the story of Ljubljana's moors and piles. In addition to the museum, the project includes trails through the moor with illustrated teaching boards and the reconstruction of five huts presenting the life of the pile dwellers. The project involved a large team of illustrators, and my part of the project represented the illustrations of life cycles of birds and amphibians.
