Perhaps a christmas card?

It's been a while since I updated the blog last time. I've been busy preparing for the christmas season, making christmas cards, calendars and other things that I can sell on all the fairs that I will be at next month. Here's my latest drawing, perhaps it will be a card I haven't decided yet. What do you think?

Autumn storm

After a long break, I'm back behind the desk. It feels good to start working again, but I can't say I look forward to the fall and the stormy, cold weather that is ahead of us. I'm definitely a spring and summer person!

Midsummer eve - Midsommarafton

Next friday it's Midsummer Eve. It's one of the biggest holidays here in Sweden.

I took some text from Wikipedia explaining what we are doing, it might explain my illustration for those who don't know our tradition:

"It is one of the most important holidays of the year in Sweden, and probably the most uniquely Swedish in the way it is celebrated. The main celebrations take place on the Friday, and the traditional events include raising and dancing around a huge maypole. Before the maypole is raised, greens and flowers are collected and used to cover the entire pole.

Raising and dancing around a maypole (majstång or midsommarstång) is an activity that attracts families and many others. People dancing around the pole listen to traditional music and some even wear traditional folk costumes. In addition, many wear crowns made of wild springs and wildflowers on their heads. The year's first potatoes, Soused herring, Chives, Sour Cream, Beer, Snaps and the first strawberries of the season are on the menu."

One of the songs, that you dance and sing around the Maypole is called "7 beautiful girls in a ring" ("sju vackra flickor i en ring") and that's my illustration for this week!

Climbing tree - Klätterträd

I've been working on this illustration the whole week. The leaves on the tree took a long time to make!!!! But now it's finished and I think I'll sell it in different sizes. Every child has it's own expression, so in a bigger size you'll see it better.
There is still a chance to be in the contest , where you have the opportunity to win a set of postcards and a print of any of my illustrations! Perhaps you'll chose this one?
