Fishing by ullakko Fishing by ullakko
Cover art for a Finnish children's book "Mennään Onkimaan! Lapsen oma kalakirja".
Authors: Virva Latostenmaa & Pauli Rytisalo
Illustrator: Ulla Thynell
Publisher: Minerva Kustannus (2013)

Kalakirjan omat nettisivut suomeksi: www.kalakirja.fi

Kirja on nyt myynnissä kirjakaupoissa ympäri Suomen, lisäksi mm. näissä verkkokaupoissa: www.kalakirja.fi/4 ! Kirjaa voi myös ostaa suoraan minulta, tiedustelut sähköpostiin ulla.thynell (at) gmail.com.




...

Note on technique: this is actually mixed media, but as there is no illustration category under that technique, so I had to put this in traditional drawings - the drawing was indeed done traditionally in ink liners. The coloring technique is half traditional, half digital.

Todella nätti kuva, ihan tulee oma lapsuus mieleen kun isännän kanssa käytiin aina kalassa. :) Tässä on tosi onnistuneet värit ja tykkään siitä, miten lapsista oikein paistaa se kalastamisen riemu.

Kiitos, että jaoit tämän ihanuuden kanssamme. ♥

Congratulations! ^^ And it's a wonderful illustration! I guess I'll have to "read" the book when it comes out (actually only look at the pictures like some child) :D I believe it'll be great :)
