It’s my mother’s birthday soon!
She used to make paper-dolls for my sister and I when we were children, I even still have a SW Stormtrooper that she drew me in 1979-ish 😊
When deciding what kind of an invitation card to do, I quickly gravitated to a paper-doll of her along with few accessories 🤓
A paper-doll is called Dúkkulísa in Icelandic, and since my mother is called Hanna (Jóhanna), I made Hönnulísa*
*Names, just as other words in the Icelandic languages, change depending on their case. If that triggers your curiosity, here’s more on that: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Icelandic_grammar
Idea came to me during a train trip from London to Leeds on Thursday. I sketched it and finished during my two days in Leeds. It’s meant to be one long picture, but I’ve cut it in half for better FB viewing 🙂

After many years within the event horizon of obscurity, I have finally brought my www.ingi.net out of the digital black hole it was falling towards.
I have compiled a rather comprehensive portfolio of my work, with more to come!
Hope you enjoy it
