Amsterdam-based editorial illustrator and visual artist Olivier Heiligers came up with the idea for ‘Sequences’ while wandering around the city and observing the different means of transport people use to get around. Thus the pages of this small book tell visual stories by placing nine drawings of objects in a certain order. As Heiligers explains, “Just by showing the objects, I could tell all sorts of stories. From observations of everyday life to socially critical stories and parodies of popular culture. In the end it’s up to the reader to combine the objects and finish the story in their own way.” Each group of drawings is accompanied by a word or short phrase to cue the narrative.
