Two days in Stockholm last week, both of them gray, rainy and intense. Svenska Tecknare arranged a whole day of seminaries about animation, 3D and graphic for games. The rest of the visit I raced to and from meetings and gatherings, at the same time thinking about how the quantity of REALLY small dogs and REALLY high heels had increased in town since the last time I visited. And then, on Saturday when I was on my way home, sun suddenly appeared! I was so taken by surprise I forgot to pick up the camera:)
Bokförlaget Opal har en bilderbokstävling för dig som är född på 80- eller 90-talet. Missa inte!
How I adore the illustrations of Katja Spitzer! We made a swap the other day, and the parcel I received was full of beautiful things.
And from my mother I got the breadbaskets in the last pic. I bake a lot of bread, and these baskets spice up the baking. I promise.
Jäskorgar finns här, bl a:
Bagaren och kocken Sök på "jäskorg"
I don´t think I have shown you these 3, or? They are not new, but they sum up many of the things I like when working. A theme is always fun to explore. Hair is very interesting! Working in a free way, without making a sketch first, is always thrilly. You take a deep breath, put the radio on, and you never know where the brushstrokes will lead you. And the coloured backgrounds is so much more fun to paint on, than scary white demanding paper sheets.
