…or not quite new, made already last year, but it took about a year to upload them into my website… Ooops.
I have made illustrations for a children’s story, a cartoon and an info booklet, and also a sea horse “logo”, commissioned by the Alzheimer Society of Finland. Texts by Heidi Härmä and Sanna Aavaluoma and layout by Mainostoimisto Maustamo (advertising agency). These booklets are meant for young children whose parents have gotten alzheimer in early age. The children’s story (The island of sea horses) was the most sad but beautiful illustration commissions ever.
It was also interesting to find out that hippocampus is a part of our brain plays important part in short- and long-time memory and it’s named after its resemblance to the seahorse (Greek hippos meaning “horse” and kampos meaning “sea monster”) – that’s why the sea horse in these stories.
I just ordered a very small test set of postcards of these grey night fants (and some pink ones too). I’ll take the cards + dozens of unique badges + whimsical and seriously weird miniprint series (with my more “serious” kind of art) to my booth at Tampere Art Fair! See you there!
