incomplete illos

A couple of illustrations waiting for a paint job. Both for a teaching pack on Scandinavia and Liverpool.

northern lights fox


According to one legend from Finland (Scandinavia? The Nordic countries?),the fox was brushing the snow with his brush and from the sparks and swirling snowflakes, the northern lights formed. It's going to be an interesting and challenging experiment, painting the northern lights with gouache! Maybe it'll be several such experiments...

Welcome back! Love these drawings, and yes, that story of the fox tail and the aurora is Finnish:

Thanks Marja-Leena - and for the link. I knew that the fox story was in Finland, I'm just not sure whether it spreads to other Nordic parts where they have the northern lights. Any ideas?
