… or in english: A little bit about me.
I’m Norwegian, married, and live in Oslo with my husband and two daughters (5 and 9). Oslo is the capital of Norway, in case you didn’t know that.
I work as a graphic designer in one of the biggest publishing houses here in Norway. Up until now I have worked only with children’s books. Children – in this case – meaning every age up to 18. I do both covers and interiors, and art direct other designers/illustrators. Starting in January I will cover all ages, and will do even more art directing. Not quite sure how that will turn out, but I’ll find out soon enough.
I studied both graphic design and illustration, and after I finished school I worked mainly as an illustrator. So my stick-men are ok, but my drawing still is quite rusty. Last year I started a blog where I try to post one sketch each week in order to draw more often, and that has got me drawing again.
When I’m not at work I’m usually either cooking, blogging or collapsed on the couch watching TV. I’m really good at watching TV! And I try to work out. Actually – and I never believed I would say this – but I’m actually enjoying it too. Who would have thought. I also enjoy taking pictures. Often of the food I’m cooking …
I’m really looking forward to DrawMo. I’m sure it will be great fun!
