Wednesdays poem


Look it Over


I leave behind even
my walking stick. My knife
is in my pocket, but that
I have forgot. I bring
no car, no cell phone,
no computer, no camera,
no CD player, no fax, no
TV, not even a book. I go
into the woods. I sit on
a log provided at no cost.
It is the earth I’ve come to,
the earth itself, sadly
abused by the stupidity
only humans are capable of
but, as ever, itself. Free.
A bargain! Get it while it lasts.



~Wendell Berry

Paper Dolls

In the November issue of COSTUME you'll find the three paper dolls of my creation.










They also put a small feature about me in the first couple of pages in the mag. Fun!

Come rain or shine...

I am slowly starting to move my things into the studio space. It seems quite messy and crammed at the moment, but as soon as the rest of the room is all painted and set it will be a day of joy and celebration! I'll give you a little peek into it right here:


I hope you have had a great day this far. I have been drawing trees, boats and stars, while listening to
these guys right here:


Little Dragon. Such a lovely band! Take a listen!

Update!

Now is the time for a new post!

I am still working on the renovation of my studio. It has been a long hard ride, but the end of painting and sanding and filling out holes in the wall is getting nearer and I am beginning to feel relieved because it has taken up a lot of space in my mind and a lot of time in my schedule! So I can't wait to settle in and start working on bigger projects and having space to do whatever I want. Drawing, painting, sewing, printing, dancing(!?)...

Meanwhile I am working on three projects that are all very lovely in their own little way. First one up is an illu for Danish fashion magazine Costume for whom I have previously made three paperdolls, which I will share with you in a post when I get the magazine in the mail! But I will give you a preview here.

The other is for Orion books. I am doing another Erica James cover.

And the last is the collaboration with Grabarz&Partner working on a project for the organization startsocial in Germany.
