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.
Here we have the first prototypes from the dollmakers.
The first homemade prototypes.
Léttur í Lunda or Light as a Puffin helt their annual games of puffin throw at the Reykjavik Town Hall. We had lots of fun guests and received quite a few fantastic new game ideas. Big thanx to everybody that came and played with us.
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.
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.
Our book is out and we have the book release at Deiglan, Akureyri this weekend.
The fundraising has gone so well and still continues, you can still buy the book at; www.skb.is
Thank you to everybody that bought a copy, all profits goes to SKB (Children with cancer foundation in Iceland).
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; http://www.borgarbokasafn.is/ or at Gerðuberg exhibition hall.
