The LAURA-project are fairy tales in children's books inspired by the Inuit Circumpolar Area culture especially the Greenlandish culture.
A similar project is the LUCCA-project. I illustrate in simple shapes and bright colors and I write in simple shapes and bright colors.I'll write the online children's books in English and translate them myself into Danish.
A Native American will check my English.The online children's books will furthermore be translated into Greenlandish, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Dutch, Greek and Russian.Research of Inuit Circumpolar Area culture especially Greenlandish culture will last from winter 2004 to spring 2005. Starting 1 November 2004. I'll travel to Greenland summer 2005.Illustration and writing of 3 - 5 fairy tales will take place autumn 2005 and end 31 October 2005.
The first Inuit drafts of main characters
The Inuits are the native inhabitants of the seacoasts of the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions of North America and the northeastern tip of Siberia.
Their habitation area extends over four countries: the United States, Canada, Russia, and Greenland. Of the more than 90,000 Inuits in this region, the greater part live south of the Arctic Circle, with approximately 28,000 on the Aleutian Islands and in Alaska, 17,000 in Canada, 1,500 in Siberia, and 45,000 in Greenland. I am drafting the main characters in my Inuit fairy tales. I am studying the characteristics and transform them into my style.
Crossing culture boundaries is visiting another world with other values and taboos. I must respect that - do I offend any Inuits by my drafts? - please tell me.
I have contacted ICC - the Inuit Circumpolar Committee - and asked that exact question.
I need publishers to print
I illustrate in simple shapes and bright colors - I write in simple shapes and bright colors.

2006 - a happy new year... About using computers/internet in art marketing:
In 2006 condescension will be replaced by acceptance???
Hi sculptor...I mean you!!! It is about encouraging children worldwide to built LEGO sculptures and exhibit them on "Children's LEGO sculptures" - an Art Gallery made for that purpose.
Colorful News... Colorful news is a live art magazine, which is continously updated.
Once upon a time... In 2005 we celebrate Danish author Hans Christian Andersen's bicentenary. I have written a fairy tale about this - and that.
The Painting Process. The draft has been exhibited on www.lonvig.dk, that is my own web site or one of the online world wide galleries in USA, France, UK, Italy or Spain. A gallery or a customer has bought the painting.
Artistic concept. My way of making art and design.
My view of art and design is controversial.
When I make drafts I use a pencil, a filling knife, a brush, a computer or something else.
