Illustrations and other things
Now the manuscript for the book "How to tame a monster" is on the table, almost ready for print. A nice feeling again to have started just from an idea which ends up into an object ready for children to be explored, hope they like it as we have been enjoying making it. The next story already started to get form Minttu s mind, and I m searching already for some characters on the visual side...Hope this will go forward as well and we can keep children being interested in the book-concept.
An other project on the table, ready to go the finish line is Hymykuoppa. 2 lovely years I had the pleasure to work with Ergoterapist Sirppa Kauranen. We worked with children which had minor difficulties in several arias, mostly approaching them from a sensorial point of view . I learned very much, mostly about the use of senses and got some conformations on my intuition part, which feels nice and inspiring to keep on going with the seem thoughts. I think it is important for us, as artists, to also socially use our creative skills, it strengthens, it gives room to work on the drawing-table and idea s to be developed: anyway, it keeps me in evolution-mode.
Some new things are being in developing state, grants to be applied for, rapports to be written...
As I thought the year would start slowly, it really started with a storm of things and thoughts...
Wishing you all inspirational days
