If ,by any coincidence, you find yourself in Bucharest 11th.august, please give a hand to these wonderful people trying to make a difference for local stray animals (most dogs and cats,but not only). The money collected from sale ( all the things you can see on their page are donations) are going to support different non-profit organizations which saving lifes actions are based 100% on voluntary work. Every buyer is invited to put the cash in the specific organisation´s box she or he wants to support,as you can see in the images on their site
Is a hard fight these people are fighting and every little penny can have a decisive value in saving a life! Show them they are not alone, show them you also support their cause!
I know is a very long time since my last post ,sorry for that .
Here is another project I made last spring, for Lysholm-skole , the special school where I´m working . I was ready to paint teddies(like last time:)), cats and bunnies and puppies and so on .But no nooo... the kids wanted ( and ordered :))) JUST insects! Period.
Their wish was my command - worked till I drop and untill was no place left on the walls to draw a line:))) !! So, here is the result :
This sweet little princess is one of our little students, Celina, who´s posing here like a real model to my talented colleague, Johnny Grunner
Aren´t they just adorable? I love this picture!
And here comes the bugs collection spring-summer 2011:
sorry for the quality of these pics; my camera is not performant
and the light inside the room was really everything but good.
A wild whales safari -where else if not in .....Amsterdam :)))
To my duch friends Arjen,Adrie&Marie,William and not least René: take care:)!!
Amsterdam´s waters abounds with nasty whales, aka ''Amsterdam´s vandals''!
So they are , according toJan Hilmar, in one of the absolutely best songs for
kids ''Whalter´s wild whales'' ! For the beginners in danish language and not just
for them : turn up the volume for danish at its very best and let´s see just how
quickly you can say:
''Vilde hvaler volder Walther voldsomme kvaler''
Jan Hilmar - ''Walthers vilde hvaler''
er en af de bedste børnesange jeg har hørt i den sidste periode!
Sangen er her, med Jans tilladelse,så skru op for lyden og nyd den sammen med dine børn!Denne sjove ordspil kunne godt erstatte den klassiske dansk tongue twister: ''Rødgrød med fløde''! Så, let´s see, hvor hurtigt kan du sige:
Dragi prieteni,draga lume,ocoliti canalele Amsterdamului zilele astea , ca-s pline de balene obraznice care zbiara, rastoarna trecatorii, plesnesc apa cu cozile lor groase si alte vandalisme d´astea!!!! Cel putin asta ne spuneJan Hilmar intr-unul dintre cele mai haioase cantece daneze pentru copii ''Balenele salbatice ale lui Walther''. Jan mi-a permis sa postez cantecul aici pe blog asa ca luati copiii langa voi, reglati volumul si bucurati-va de aceasta ...aproape ca as numi-o ''ciuleandra'' daneza :))!
A ''lesson'' for IF which is in the same time one of the illos left behind when Karina´s book got published last month. For yes, finally!! After all possible and impossible kinds of adventures she had, involving publishers and publishers and even more publishers, ''Stories for smart kids'' ( about which I was talking last year in June,
to illustrate:)) is out on the market .I mean... romanian market:))
(The Blog is driving me crazy!! Seems more n more difficult to manage
the pagination--the lines are flying in all directions...huh!)
Yet I didn´t got the chance to see how the final version looks like. There have been done so many changes so I´m looking forward to get my hands on it !
Dragi prieteni ,draga lume, dupa aventuri si aventuri, cu o intarziere de aproape un an, fabulele Karinei au vazut in sfarsitlumina tiparului(ce-mi place expresia asta!), nu la Lumen, asta a propos de lumina,ci la o alta editura. Cartea a trecut printr-o multime de transformari o parte din ilustratii s-au pierdut pe drum (asta in ciuda efortului Karinei de a pastra cat mai multe) asa ca abia astept sa vad produsul final.
Kære venner og familie og alle:) Karina´s bog med fabler ''Historier for kloge børn'' , illustreret af jeres ''yndlingskunstner'', he he,er efter en lang laaaaang forsinkelse endelig kommet på gaden . Jeg mener dog... på de rumænske gader:))
is there anybody out there? without any direct or particular connection to my little Teddy& his teddybear - I just saw again The Wall with Waters and the amazing cartoonist Gerald Scarfe commenting in the background
