With grandma Ebba…

I wanted to show my readers that life can be magical, that life does not end when you are 70. I want to show my readers my Grandmothers virtues, that you always need to stay active, never settle for worse and you are stronger than you think.

Every time I am in Sweden I ask my grandmother a lot of question, so the one thing I did have was a map on how she travelled and lived a young. That was kind of my starting point, but I needed to know more. I started by interviewing my Grandmother, I wanted her to tell stories from her life. The challenges by this were to try to remember the stories that I recorded and to then go back to the video material to find the “gold pieces” took some time.

 
I wanted to keep a very watercolour sketched look, to be able to sketch this as fast as I could, without losing charm. I learned as well that I can shade my complete piece first and then colour it all in with colour to make the process even faster.
