This dropped into my mailbox today! It is the Norwegian Illustrators No04, a collection of 92 Norwegian Illustrators, or rather, their illustrations. It was quite exciting both to see my own work printed like this, in between a (‘Norwegian’) world of various illustration styles, as well as finding colleagues (I prefer calling fellow illustrators that rather than competitors;) and browsing their work. The nice book cover for example, is illustrated by Maja Nøkleby. The whole thing is arranged by Grafill Illustrasjon and published by Magikon Forlag, where you can buy the book too!
In January I sent off a small sketchbook that was part of "The Sketchbook Project", and I illustrated the theme A path through the trees. Well, this and a whole little library of other sketchbooks are now on a world tour - currently to be found in Orlando, then moving on to Austin, London and Melbourne in the next few months. So if you’re around these places you should check it out! (Places and dates here.)
You can also flick through mine and others’ sketchbooks at the digital library: Have a look!
