The Old Man and the Fat Ginger Cat
John Paul Wijnberg
African doctor, love nature, fishing, arts and creativity, gardening and most of all my loving family.
An old man living in Indonesia, loves nature, birds and plants. Saves a ginger cat one day, the cat grows and grows and eventually eats all the old man's birds....the old man gets rid of the cat and fate has it that the cat and the old man meet up again and their adventure with a black eagle brings them back together.
Children 3 years and upwards, but even adults can have fun with this story as it stops at regular intervals to allow debate about what the characters should do etc...All sexes, all races, all religions.. The story aims to provoke thought about certain life crises that commonly arise in all our lives at various times and think about how we can address them. Hope, love and faith that things will work out for the best.

Other color requirements
Interesting colours which keep viewer wondering what colour it actually is, nice blends ..it is all about colours...alive pulsating and interesting shadows...
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
johnwijnberg collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
This is the second book we've worked on together, and as before really thrilled with the outcome. Veerle's great at directing a novice book writer on the various options and possibilities and I feel in very safe, experienced hands with her. Will definitely be going back to her for more as my work expands!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
