My sweet Lára and the hot chocolate

My 2 year old daughter, Lára Rún and I walked around town the other day when her preschool was closed. We fed the ducks and walked into a café in the freezing cold morning air and just had to have some hot chocolate,...and of course you don't just drink the chocolate when you have a straw to make bubbles with :)

Illustration Friday - Dusty

"Well, I guess I'm just a dusty old man after all..."

Every Friday at noon I get an email from Illustration Friday with the topic of the week to illustrate. Every Friday I plan to make an illustration for this topic, but every Friday just flies away and I end up with something totally different on my drawing table. But this week I submitted my first post, and certainly not the last.

Happy New Year!

Happy 2011 everyone!!! 2010 was an eventful year and I'm excited to see what 2011 beholds.

I recently illustrated 5 New Years Poems and these are three of those illustrations. In Iceland we (well, some of us) believe that something magical happens on New Years day and also on the thirteenth day after Christmas. Elves and fairies honor us with their presence those days and celebrate with us.
