Some people say a rock has no feelings

Some people say a rock has no feelings

They say snow can not sing

 And mountains can not move

 But I don’t believe them

A glimpse of the first dummy

I just made a first dummy for the children’s book that I’m currently making in Iceland. As soon as I leaf through it, I notice how a hundred things are not quite right yet. The paper, the size, the order, the selection. At the same time, I feel that it works. I am happy with the story. There is an interesting contrast between the serious black and white photos and the minimalistic drawings that playfully reveal what is hidden in the landscape.
