WE’RE THREE FRIENDLY FOLKS
WHO JUMPED TOGETHER ON A
FANTASTIC JOURNEY.

get to know us!

We are three artist friends from three different countries who decided to work together on a project.

The Tales of Three illustrated book project started because of a suggestion of a fellow artist friend, Emanuel Daniels, who said it would be awesome to see us work together on a collaborated piece. We jumped at the idea, and we've loved it ever since.

THE STORY

An Ice Witch who's desperately afraid of melting teams up with a girl made of fire and a stubborn stone golem, and embark on a dangerous adventure in order to get their one wish granted.

A story that will connect with you.

The book itself is inspired on us and our road as artists: the challenges each of us has to go through in life - and on our artistic journeys - and hopefully, in the end, we will also reach the same conclusion as our characters.

We worked hard
to bring our story to everyone’s hearts:

110% funded!

We launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to print our book and bring it to our audience around the globe. Thanks to all of our backers, friends and family we succeeded!

Thank you so much for your support!

We met at The Oatley Academy while pursuing our artistic goals. The community brought us together.

Working like we do, living in separate countries across Europe is amazing! There hasn't been any problems occurring despite the fact we don't work in studio together on this. We have face-time, schedules, extra meetings when required, homework and deadlines. And we talk pretty much everyday. This project means a lot to us.We hope you'll love this as much as we do.

Frederic was born and raised on Belgian fries and waffles, but ended up living in the land of a thousand lakes after he fell head over heals in love with a Finnish damsel whilst labouring away in the Scottish hills. Once vows of eternal faithfulness had been exchanged and a humble shelter had been built it was time to expand their family. First with the addition of their furry friend Max and later with their adorable two-footer called Leo. It was at this time of chaos that he was approached by a cookie-monster and a bookworm to embark on the adventure we now call Tales of Three.

THANK YOU for your support!

We’re working hard, but without some help we would have to work WAY harder, so thank you!

The Portuguese Software & Design company Sigmasense has been an invaluable asset for us! It is thanks to them that we have this amazing web-page and it is via them that we have received so much help for the editorial design of our book. We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts the help you have given us and the faith you have in us. It’s amazing.

We also want to send a huge thank you to Chris Oatley and The Oatley Academy. If it hadn’t been for him the three of us would never have met, and these books never would have been a reality. He has also been a HUGE help through our process. We also want to extend a big thank you to the community at The Oatley Academy for their support and love. We cannot thank you enough.

Want to help us?

Thank you so much for reading! If you like what we're trying to achieve, we would be thrilled if you could help us out with a small donation.
