lucia 2018

Every year in december, we celebrate Lucia at the university. This is the illustration i made for this year’s poster. I painted it in watercolour. I wanted to do some sort of old-school Scandinavian interior – no idea if it’s accurate, but this was the cosy atmosphere I was going for. I also managed to sneak in three cats :)
I started doing these Lucia-illustrations when I was organizing the event myself and I didn’t want to steal some illustration from the internet, so I thought the easiest way to get around copyright-issues was to just paint something myself (this was the poster I made). But since then, I’ve put more effort into them every year, just because it’s one of those few times a year I paint and I just see it as a nice pre-Christmas activity.
