W from White and Winter

Happy New Year!!!!





''White,like a scandinavian gift!!''-I love the local silver and white
decoration style!All white lamps and candels,silver Herstal´s series
and''Karen Blixen´s Jul'' from Rosendahl,''troldpilen''-with its branches
defying any botanical rule or symmetry,all so popular here,just to
give some examples.Aparently I can´t get enough''white''-feel.That´s
why,everything I touched(with decorative intentions) ended up
looking like forgoted in Chlorine!Green and red were deported
this winter!Maybe I start to suffer a rare form of ''chromato-phobi''
or a ''color-allergy'':))))?Or is,maybe, just the lack of snow:)))
Wish you all the best for 2009,
may it be a year full of succeses!!

Rambunctious-II


The Time


Illo for a winter story:
''The girl who ask for Time''
''-You pretend you know me?asked Time the litlle girl.You are too young to know what The TIME means!''
I wanted actually to use this illo for IFs ''pretend''.I must say I´m not sure I get right the meaning of being ''rambunctious'' as my dictionary present a less active image, in definition:))

To have my work elected by them,was more than touching for me,being a big fan of their institution,of the modern-nostalgic and all in all special atmosphere they created on their shops!
I don´t have big hopes,but with a little luck,maybe I´ll have the chance,at the end of this year,to see this watercolor printed on their shelfs:well,honestly...will be actually to beautiful to be true:))
but one can only hope:))
Have all the best wishes and great-great vacantion!!

High Hopes

IF´´Balloon``(sorry for coming with this old one,I didn´t had time for something new)
just some info i could get and post, like Jennifer suggested,for thouse of you,bighearted people who find and try to save baby birds fallen from the nest-when you can´t find a veterinary or
a specialized help in good time. Better to repeat also the things I found,talking with an old romanian doctor
From his experience:

1.if the nest is found and you put the bird back,supervise it in first24hour to see if the parents are not rejecting the baby
2.if you can´t find a specialized help,never feed the bird before you know which species it is:the diet can be different from one to another( fresh insects all can take):with less food-you have a hungry baby;with too much food-you can have a dead one;
3.the baby -bird should be placed in a warm place,as similar as possible with his nest:in a dark box or half covered one:most of them are photophobic and stressed in an open place,if they never left the nest.If they are big enough an open space is indicated so they can practice the fly.I´ve heared there are some special electric-warm boxes for kitten which can be used as well to keep the bird warm enough.
The food should be hashed in very little pieces or made a paste,the water or this paste can be gived by serynge.There are some birds who can not toleratte the seeds the thrush is well known for it.The same for blackbird,she can take though canary food.Big atention with the earthworm(angleleworm):this one can transfer a lethal parasit,better to get red worm or others worms( head off and paste made) which can be found on fisher shops. Never use ants .
Other things blackbirds,thrush,nightingale(and other from the same family ) can eat:
instant piure for babies(Milupa,for ex),boiled egg especially the yolk,cow cheese(but is a special one in Romania...not sure is the same caw cheese everywhere),little pieces of cow heart,fruits and vegetable a big list(f.ex:apple,chery,banana,
carrot,winegrapes without seeds etc.),cow meat made
almost like a paste. You can aplly this menu also to spparows, rocklet, raven,including seeds.Also if you give them bread,neved give fresh one.Feed them 3 times a day-not in the night,unless is a night-bird.Don´t bring too many people and activity around .The ''stress'' factor is also a deadly one for little wild birds.
exist also a birds book by Doris Quinten (I don´t know the title)where she give some info about how the wild baby birds
can be treated.

I hope this informations can help...

appologies for my awfully english :(

Worry II

''Have you read my diary?
Now you have a reason to worry!'':)
Being an aspirant illustrator,I must confess I´m worried
that sometime in search for originality and expressivity
I can forget that I actually make illustrations for kids.
I have some illustrated books at home which have terrorized
my childhood:).A bit grotesque collages,very metaphoric,
with silouhetes and characters mixing each other.
Now I look at them with admiration!Are really great!
But is also true now I´m an adult.Must be a dilema,isn´t it?
To whom should an illustrator think about first?To his artistic
needs-to kids pleasure-to parents pleasure(in the cases where
is impossible to have all satisfied)? Well,is a prety much retoric
question,because I´m sure it dosen´t exist a general rule
to follow,but I keep wondering

Inca ma intreb la ce principii ar trebui sa faca apel
o buna ilustrare a cartilor pentru copii.Pastrez inca
ceva carti ilustrate care mi-au terorizat copilaria:)
Acum,privindu-le imi par incredibil de originale si
de bine lucrate. Dar acum sunt adult:)).Dilema,nu?

Worry



I´m worried.
I´m worried when I see majestic animals like elephants,or
other ones,treated just like decorative anexes of their owners

I´m worried when I see people who still consider

amusing and artistic the animals torture for circus spectacles.

I´m worried we still use cages and find pleasure in keeping

another living creature in captivity just for fun.Worried...

Book

I had the chance to illustrate this book,published in 2007.
How sad,at that time I was ''running'' with full speed between2 jobs, in a
special school and in a foundation.I made all 9 illos agains time,with
the tools I found near my hand on that moment:a mixute of watercolor,
rest of oil color,pencils and so on,not even a good linner for details:(

I followed the author´s wish for cover(well,I wanted another one:)).
The stories are trully beautifull.She couln´t publish them before
Revolution,in 1990,because of the missing contain of subjects
like tractors,agriculure,working people,pioniers, etc,and
other ''cult-icons'' of that period.The manuscript get dust in shelf
for more than 50 years.I hear now,the book is a succes:)!!
Not every time the things are comming on the right moment
in your life,but it´s good to know you´ve done the best for...



Am avut sansa sa ilustrez cartea de povesti,a scriitoarei Georgetta Florentza Marincu
(pentru connaisseuri,este autoarea monografiei ''Cioburi de istorie'',
pt. care a primit premiul ''Ion Neculce'')
Ce pacat ca,la momentul respectiv nu am avut nici suficient timp,lucrand
contra cronometru cu doua joburi,nici unelte cat de cat potrivite.
Povetile sunt tare frumoase,au stat intr-un sertar mai bine de 50 de ani
( se poate observa lucrul acesta dupa felul in care sunt ortografiate unele
cuvinte:)).Pentru cei care gasesc interesanta informatia:cartea a fost
publicatain 2007,la Editura Autograf MJM.

Morning shadows

This morning brought so much light and this beautiful shadows...
Sometime simple things like this can ''light'' the whole day:))
Unfortunatelly I couldn´t get with my mobile the real,whole beauty.
But as much as I captured I share with you:))
Have a good week-end!

In dimineata asta,muuuulta lumina si cateva umbre atat de frumoase!!

dar atat cat am surprins impartasesc,cu drag, cu voi:))
Sa aveti un sfarsit de saptamana frumos!!

I´ll try to post from time to time captures of this simple things beauty

Til lille søde Marie

''For little sweet Marie'',my niece
a litttle card I made for the day she was baptised.
The broken ''info-papers''are comming from an old eastern
(..and not just eastern) tradition
for good faith:the ''black faith''will get lost in information
let´s say:)and will abandonate the search for her.Don´t ask me
how the good one will find her,is assumed that she had acces
to the whole information through the new born´s familiy
Pentru micuta-dulcea Marie,nepotica mea,
un desen facut iute in ziua in care a fost botezata.
Hartiile rupte(la noi e turta rupta:))reprezinta un
talisman,impotriva ursitoarei rele,care desigur
neavand informatia completa,se va pierde pe drum si
va abandona cautarea:)).Nu intrebati ce se intampla
cu ursitoarea buna:in principiu ea are acces la info intreaga:))

Aspirant illustrator

Morna´s comment made me think...
Even if (by pure coincidence) I illustrated a book for kids in 2007,
I still can´t call myself an illustrator:I´ll doit for sure when I´ll feel
that I reached a certain level in drawing and a more clear style.
For the moment I´m still ''aspirant'' in status,in search for my own style and
''admirer'' of many incredible artists I just discovered, seeing their work online:)

I must say I´m very grateful for all the encourageing comments I received from all of you,
since I started posting here!
Thanks a lot and have a great week !

Electricity

Drakespeare
One of the advantages in being a dragon is that you
dont´t have to worry about electric bill:)

After doodleing a while with dragons,I end up combining the 2 themes from
IF and Monday Artday(electricity and monsters) and this is,
a new member in dragon´s family:
''Drakespeare'',a voracious books devorator
well,I actually just find out that someone else invented this name before,
so maybe I should re-baptise him:))

I´m out of paper
I used instead some math pages
