ROBOT : 4 IN 1...

Added on by suana verelst.

sometimes things work out just the way they do...

ever since the end of september, i wanted to go back to where i started with the project for the book of death, with the lady and the fish, well, here she is and a little more:
emma, a soft doll i created a few years back, became the character for the robot, albeit deconstructed. what i did not intend were the 3 other faces: a look-alike of anubis, a jackal-headed god associated with mummification and the afterlife in egyptian mythology. [one year after i started participating with the book of death project!] and a robot serving eggs...
just in time to make the deadline for the troyart exhibition in brazil...
"emma, fish and would you like to have eggs with that ?" 2010

Added on by suana verelst.

there is a lot to tell you since i last posted, there would be a lot to show if and when i can. that time has unfortunately not yet arrived, pa-ti-en-ce...
[i know it's a lot asked!]
there will be books published in the beginning of the new year [here and ...] and i am participating in a new show about robots in brazil in january 2011.
i received my package only yesterday, played a little how the little bugger fits together but at the moment don't know yet what or how i will proceed with this little fellow, designed a concept for the poster ...well, i better sit down, think and rush to get 'em out of the door...
and then there was the winter welcome [2 days ago] .... photos will follow....until very soon


 

READY TO SEND OUT...

Added on by suana verelst.

after some time testing the colors and making a decision on the size to keep sending somewhat to a minimum, i finally saw the results of the prints for 'les enfants disparus' this morning. i couldn't hold back from making a few dummies to not only see but also feel the actual book, albeit at 75%...

and then..... it is holiday time !
see you all back in august. xo

 

MEMOIRES D'ENFANCE

Added on by suana verelst.

the temperatures here in montreal are stifling: inside 32ºc, outside on the balcony the thermometer is hovering around 38ºc - !

despite the hot and humid days here, the illustration work for "les enfants disparus" is steadily progressing. here is the first double page for the project. i am working on another double page i hope to complete this week.
i'll keep you posted!

A LITTLE BREAK WHILE PACKING

Added on by suana verelst.

i found these wonderful old stories from my childhood and a book about old children's book covers. it's amazing how much stuff one accumulates and so little of it really is ever looked at. is it a question of organization ? or is it a lack of time and a sense of peace ? i am not quite sure. for the next little while i'll be facing all my stuff, hopefully it all will find a neat place within a box. i've only started this process and haven't even looked at the heaps of clothes, fabrics, bits and pieces and stuff[!] that is safely hidden behind those doors...

apart from packing, i am still working on the commissioned bird, but nothing of note to mention as of yet. i hope to post some of my progress next week and then there is the collaboration of a new book "les enfants disparus" with catherine latteux, sketches are ready, paper size and layout too.... now it's a question of time and focus... wish you a wonderful weekend! ;D suana




TEMPERATURES ARE RISING...

Added on by suana verelst.

is spring in the air ? the little hobbelbush seems to nod ....
in the last little while too many projects demanded my attention and with march starting, i am going to focus on the most pressing : organization and order in my daily life/living, toy commission and the collaboration with catherine latteux. for some reason when i have too many things screaming to be finished, very little gets accomplished. so, i will try to approach each day a little calmer, a little more peaceful and more focused.
ommmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....
