I thought it is about time to introduce the second children’s book that I have been illustrating. It is now available on Amazon.
Unfortunately the story is only available in Icelandic, and I don’t think there are that many Icelandic readers here. But maybe there are aspiring Icelandic learners. It is certainly suitable for them as it is intended for children 6 years and older.
The first book I ever illustrated was the story of Nobbi and his pug Kobbi, written by my friend Norbert, whichyou can find here.
The Adventures of the Little Fly is written also by an Icelandic author, Rúna Vala, and tells the story of a little fly who lives in a tree in a garden. Puzzled by the changing seasons and the change the garden goes through the little fly sets our on unexpected adventures.
The fly has no name as it is just a fly, not a very small one, but not a very big one either. Just about average.
Like with other rodents, capybaras’ front teeth never stop growing. Their incisors are strong and chisel-like, making them highly effective at cutting through grass. In order to keep their teeth to a reasonable length, they get worn down from all the eating they do.
This little capybara and many other fun facts you find in my colouring book.
In hindsight I would do many things differently when it comes to illustrating and editing the book. But then again, it was the first and there is a learning curve. 🙂 I definitely want to do more book illustrations and am busy practicing and learning new publishing and editing programs.
In fact, I just finished my second children’s book, a story about a little fly. I am very happy of how it turned out. More about it soon!
I have plenty of inspiration when it comes to drawings but I suck at making up stories. If anyone has a great story idea they would like to collaborate on, please drop me a line.
Easter weekend is coming up. I haven´t been painting Easter eggs in years. But I got inspired to draw Mr Fox painting eggs.
Are you still looking for Easter cards or wrapping paper or a little present? I put the image of little Mr Fox on Ko-fias a high resolution image with different background colors for you to download, so you can print your own cards for friends or family.
Have a happy Easter weekend! I for my part will be out hiking in the sun.
After several edits I am happy and proud to announce that my/our first children´s book is available to order!
With my friend Norbert, who wrote the story, we have been working on it for a while now and are happy to finally have the print version ready!
The story is about two best friends that find out how long a working week can be! A week at work can often feel very long and sometimes, not everyone is happy with it. In the end though, it pays to be patient.… and Kobbi, the little pug, is very patient.
