I am Maeva Rubli, an illustrator and author based in Basel and Delémont. With curiosity and passion, I develop projects, create picture books, comics, visual essays and illustrations for various applications. I consider storytelling and illustration as a powerful tool to observe and to question our world, as well as a colourful way to communicate about issues with sensibility.
