Bugs and bugs and more bugs

         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 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, 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 there was no light inside the room.

Walther´s wild whales

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 to Jan 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''

   Jan Hilmars  ''Walthers vilde hvaler'' fra Cd-en ''Fra Hulter til Bulter''
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:
''Vilde hvalder volder Walther voldsomme kvaler'':)))))??!?

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 spune Jan 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,
and the second book the ''artist'' here named had the pleasure
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 sfarsit lumina 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 gaden . Jeg mener dog... på de rumænske gader:))

All sorrows, pain and sadness are surrendering in the front
of a new life. Here is the hope,the joy,here is the''tomorow''.
And here is the invitation I´ve made for my friends´s little Stefan,

Being the first post of this year, I wish you all
a Wonderful 2011!

and Z from Zentropa

Many are associating the danish film
studio Zentropa exclusively with the
very sonor name of Lars von Trier.
And who can blame them?
I´m a fan of his work too:))
and btw,only in danish for the moment:
-film editing in work-

Not that many knows that behind the
masterpieces released by the studio
stays a whole army of enormous
dedicated and passionate people and
nevertheless the iron hand in a velvet
glove of Zentropa´s Tzar and most warm
and friendly host ever: Peter Aalbæk .
These are the less known or totally
anonymous heroes; a little line on the
movie´s credits running at the end
across the screen with big speed.
Big enough to return unnoticed back
into the anonimous space it just came from.
Well: Hats off to all these people!

Hvilken skal det være?
Så er det igen tiden for den store/skøre familiefest
med alle sammen fra nær og fjern samlet denne
gang i København. En del af fest-traditionen (foruden
den ''til solopgang'' drikkeri) er auktionen (spændende!)
hvor hver deltager kommer med nogle ting og køber,
selvfølgelig andres; alle pengene går til den næste fest.
Min svigemor spurgte efter nogle tegninger til auktio-
nen...såååå hvilke tegninger bliver det?
Mare party mare cu tot familionul, sau ,in
fine -doar cu ''aripa daneza'',adunata cu mic
cu mare in capitala, de prin toate colturile DK.
3zile-3nopti,ca la nunta!
Traditia cere,printre altele, ca toti participantii
sa contribuie cu oarece Ceva la licitatia care are
loc la un moment dat. Suma stransa e pastrata pt.
urmatoarea petrecere.Eu,cu intentia vadita de a
ma da mai gospodina decat sunt in realitate,am
tras frumos in sticle ceva lichior''home-made'',dar
soacra-mea insista sa pun la bataie niste tablouri,
ca sa repetam succesul de data trecuta,hehehe...
Biiig familiy party ahead! A part of the tradition
include a auction with objects brought by all
participants.My mother in low asked for some
paintings in order to repeat the last session´s

A hedgehog for a kingdom!

''A kingdom, a kingdom, (my) hegdehog for a kingdom!''
to make the story (very) short I will just add that The Kingdom
exists between the covers of ''Theodosius the Small'',a novel
by R.Radulescu,the book I was hopelessly searched for ,since 2007

daca ati citit randurile de mai sus,ati inteles care-i treaba:
l-am vanat pe ''Teodosie cel Mic'' ,pan´ce mi-am pierdut
absolut orice speranta ca-l voi putea citi inainte de reeditare
(reeditare care,hm...cine stie cand si daca va avea loc) .
Dar iata ca lumea-i plina de miracole, la o adica,
si mulliganoglu gasi absolut ultimul (sunt convinsa!)
''Teodosie'' intr-o librarie subterana (ce spuneam eu,
miroase a miracol:)!) din Bucuresti! Mai mult decat atat,
neplacandu-i deloc ( da´deloc!!)nici Teodosie,nici bufnita,
nici restul bestiarului radulescian (ok,oarece exceptie,se
pare, facu totusi pisicainele ) a acceptat sa-mi cedeze
''comoara'' . In schimbul unui ''aricel pleoshtit'' . La care
am plusat si cu o bufnita capsunareasa, de teama ca (cine
stie?) poate prinde in cele din urma drag de cartea asta
si huuuh, Doamne-fereste! se razgandeste !!
Later edit : Teodosie si cei Doi Lebadoi au ajuns cu bine
la capatul calatoriei lor spre nord si s-au instalat in varful
unui anumit teanc de carti: acelea dintre paginile carora se
itzesc capetele unor mai mult sau mai putin improvizate
semne de carte; ma uit la ''Teodosie cel Mic'' cu sentimentul
pe care trebuie sa-l fi avut copilul din cantecul acela arhicunoscut,
privind gutuia din fereastra:nu stiu daca-mi va placea sau nu
povestea,dar, pentru moment,asa cum sta acolo,ascunsa in copertele
ei , fara nici un semn de carte intre pagini, e insasi intruchiparea
Promisiunii ! Si parca tot nu-mi vine sa cred ca am pus (in sfarsit!)
mana pe cartea asta : mulliganoglu, multumesc mult inca o data !

Dear everybody

IF-'paisley',couldn´t fit better! If you will scroll down a bit, you´ll
see that all my swallows got one on their back:)! So,as you can see,
soon will come a new children´s book in town: ''Stories for smart
kids'' (however,it is just for romanian kids,he,he) with lyrics by
Karina Muresanu Vlad,who kindly invited the ''Artist''
here named to illustrate it:))

Lume,lume! Cum ziceam si mai sus,la un moment dat (intr-una
din zilele acestei veri , speram noi) povestile cu rima si morala
ale Karinei, ilustrate de subsemnata, vor vedea lumina
tiparului. ''Lumina tiparului'' la propriu,pentru ca intamplator
sau nu (Karina stie ce si cum),editura se numeste atat de frumos :

Garden cat -if

Summer´s t(r)ail with garden cat & leaves of grass
Så har vi havens katte :)) Daca tot veni vorba de pisici,vara si iarba,
si daca tot astept ''Centrifuga'' lui T.O.Bobe,
pun si eu o bucatica de rima pt. P.d.s.
(chiar daca-i duminica)
''(...) Si m-as face templu
Nu ma lasa iarba
M-as preface-n mine,
Cu genunchii goi
Si legandu-mi fruntea
ca la baba-oarba
M-as lua de mana
Si-as fugi-napoi (...)''
Prin anii ´90 aparusera intr-o brosurica,poeziile
unei adolescente: Iulia Dora Marinescu .Din ea am
recitat,din memorie( cat de exact am facut-o,nu stiu).
Ce s-a intamplat cu ea ? Cu Iulia?
A mai scris? Mai scrie?
(nica´ pe google,nici macar o alta ,cu acelasi nume )

For pokker, f***, h*** og Søren da ! Mange pindsvin bliver
nemlig dræbt i trafikken (50.000-80.000, hvert år kun
i DK !).Hvis en pindsvinemor dør,så er hendes unger også
Jeg er bange for,at snart vil stakkels pindsvinet blive udslettet..
One more dead hedgehog if I see,I´ll also die of sorrow!
With 50-80.000 killed in traffic every year just in DK
I´m surprised this species(btw:what is in english
the singular of ''species'?no one seem to know exactly)
is not yet exterminated.
Inca un arici mort sa mai vad si mor si eu de inima rea!
Cum vine primavara si ies din hibernare, cum incepe carnagiul!
La cat de multi zac de-a lungul soselelor ma mir ca specia nu a
fost inca exterminata...dar,ne vom ocupa noi si de asta,nu?
Ca doar ne sta in obicei sa ducem treaba la bun sfarsit...

early for IF

well,someone is actually getting up earlier than me...''getting up''
is a way of saying´cause in this period of nights-without night is
difficult to sleep,to begin with(and I´m not living that far in the
north to get real ''white nights'';here they are rather...grey:))) .
Even if we have this special curtains,so is dark inside the house,
my internal clock refuse to get fooled by a minor detail like this,
and continue to adjust itself after what´s happening behind the
curtains,outside.So,I´m going around like a zombie,worse than
Al Pacino in Insomnia, avoiding to watch the watch-my body
knows anyway that is almost morning...that´s why I don´t see
why I´m sooo damn surprised when I start to hear the
blackbirds & their sisters singing:
What so late? so early

... at least if I could find a productive way of using my
insomnia,reading books,finishing the drawings and
other dead-lines,doing SOMETHING.But I´m sooo
tired and my brain refuse to cooperate:))) maybe
it´s time to start getting pills
