Arndís – The doll

Toy, Uncategorized June 16, 2019

For the last few months I´ve been working with SKB (children with cancer association) on making a new doll for them, to give to children with cancer. The first prototype arrived today and I´m extremely happy with the outcome. He/ she has no name, for it should be without gender. I hope that shows trough with the choose of colours and the different headpieces.

I joined a fantastic workshop called Work in Progress, that is a workshop for professional illustrators helt as a part of the children’s book festival; Litteralund in Lund, Sweden. litteralund, wip workshop, lund, sweden
We had the best time and amazing workshop leaders; Maisie Paradise Shearring, Sara Lundberg, Joohee Yoon and my all time favorite Bernardo P. Carvalho from Planeta Tangerina. The workshop ended with a little exhibition of the work we did during that time.

The first (of hopefully many) story of Zeta written by Eva Thorgeirsdottir is coming out this December 😀
It is called “Woolen Socks in Christmas Snow” and it’s about this little creature called Zeta and her adventures. The story is in the form of a christmas calendar, so everyday a new window opens with a part of the story and a illustration. Today it’s the 1st of December. You can follow the story from the Reykjavik Library website; or at Gerðuberg exhibition hall.
