Last week I was invited to the Stockholm Public Library to talk about my book Frostvandrare, its artwork and the background of the book’s world and characters.
It was great fun!
The whole thing was arranged and led by Patrik Schylström, (to my left in the first photo below) whom I want to sincerely thank. He did a terrific job with this.
The Photo at the bottom is of the oversized printer thingy I played with that whole day! Photos of the prints deserve their own post and I will publish it shortly.
Congratulations Eric Persson for winning a portrait of yourself painted as a frostvandrare by sharing the #frostvandrare hashtag.
It I had a great time painting your portrait!
Some time ago I promised I’d draw the names of those who shared the #frostvandrare hashtag from a hat, and that I would paint a portrait of the winner as a frostwanderer with antlers. So, a hat was produced and a name drawn. The winner Eric Persson @penandpaper_ on instagram won. This is how I painted the portrait. (Final image in upcoming post!)
The portrait in painted in watercolors on a 55 x 75 cm 300 g Saunders Waterford paper. It was a delight painting on it.
A week ago or so I received the things I had ordered from the printing house! Finally, I have waited for this moment. I will sell them at various markets and conventions and they will also become available in a couple of shops which I’ll name when the time is ripe.
For now though, they are available here!
Fan art of the official festival image is a time-honored (what? 6 years now?) tradition, so here goes, this is my (Frostwanderer-inspired [Of course haha] ) interpretation:
I posted the official 2014 image in another post, here.
