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.
