I LOVE Tove Jansson! 🙂 I was so happy that I was in Finland when this exhibition at Ateneum was held (Its still going on). I went to see it with my mom and it was HUGE! She had done so many things, completeley incredible! The space was full of her many paintings, sketches, drawings, comic strips, magazine illustrations, propps, puppets etc. She is most famous as the creator of The MOOMINS, or like we say in the original Finnish-Swedish; Mumin, mumintrollen. There was one video from that exhibition that stands out in my mind, she is in the countryside, dancing and laughing and jumping and coming down some big rocks, she looks so happy so I wanted to sketch that here with a Mumin joining her. 🙂 ❤
