U studenom 2020 sudjelujem na izložbi 1. kvarnerske kolonije autorskog stripa i ilustracije u Rijeci u režiji #DamirSteinfl i #udrugaDIP
Damir Steinfl me je kontaktirao emailom i zamolio da izaberem radove za izložbu stripa i ilustracije ekoja će se održati u studenom 2020 u Rijeci. Nisam bila sigurna da li ja spadam na tu izložbu jer iskreno, ne bavim se toliko stripom. Međutim, nakon što sam proroštala foldere s ilustracijama, shvatila sam da bih voljela priložiti ilustracije koje sam radila za jednu dječju knjigu velikog izdavača u Hrvatskoj, ali koje nisu bile prihvaćene. Damiru se ta ideja svidjela i zbog toga sam mu zahvalna. Tako su i one dobile svoju publiku:)
Damir Steinfl contacted me by email and asked me to select works for the exhibition of comics and illustrations to be held in November 2020 in Rijeka. I wasn’t sure if I belonged in that exhibition because honestly, I don’t do that much in comics. However, after rummaging through the folders with illustrations, I realized that I would like to attach illustrations that I did for a children’s book by a large publisher in Croatia, but which were not accepted. Damir liked the idea and I am grateful to him for that. That’s how they got their audience 🙂
Jedna od ilustracija je čak bila i na HTV emisiji u najavi izložbe:)
One of the illustrations was even on the HTV show in the announcement of the exhibition 🙂
SHEEP IN A BOX award for the best picture book in 2020
Danas u podne je bilo svečano proglašenje dobitnika priznanja i nagrada za najbolju hrvatsku slikovnicu OVCA U KUTIJI 2020. Slikovnica ‘Park u oblacima’ koju sam ilustrirala prema prekrasnom tekstu autorice Snježana Babić Višnjić izabrana je najboljom među zaista velikom i jakom konkurencijom. Beskrajno sam sretna i ponosna! Nadam se da će se i vama svidjeti
Today at noon was the award ceremony for the best Croatian picture book SHEEP IN A BOX 2020. The picture book ‘Park in the clouds’, which I illustrated according to the beautiful text by Snježana Babić Višnjić, was chosen as the best among the really big and strong competition. I am infinitely happy and proud! I hope you’ll like it too!
I was doing some Christmas cards today and would like to share the process with you.
Tools: thin markers or flomasters (I used red, white, gold), moosgummi, paint roller with sponge, xacto knife, paper for card (250-300g/m2), snowflake stamp that you can buy at local hobby art shop or you can make it from moosgummi glued on cork, tempera ( I used white:). Get some paper towell and surface you’ll work on so you can cut and paint on it. And apron!:)
1. Draw and cut motif in moosgummi. You can cut moosgummi in dimensions of the card and inside that format cut out your motif. I cut out ornament and Christmas tree.
2. Place the motif on the card and with sponge roller apply psint on it. Make sure paint got to the edges of your cut motif.
3. Add snow flakes with stamp around the motif. If you are making the stamp, do this:
Cut the circle from moosgummi, glue it on the cork (make sure the circle is the same dimensions as cork), when it’s dry, draw snow flake on it with thin stick or toothpick. Voila!
