The snow is slowly melting in Helsinki. The white landscape and streets are giving space to greyish mud and lots of ice. It's getting tricky to walk around since the ice makes everything very slippery and it's really hard to see the frozen paths. There's also warning signs all over town about the falling ice from the rooftops. I guess that's the way it works here, people here don't bother or worry too much....but for me, extra care walking around is totally needed.
I have finished designing a poster for the Children Workshop in February, and today my task was delivering it around town, specifically at the libraries and comic shops. It was great to see parts of the city I've never been and to see my art attached on the walls of Finnish buildings. It is just a small poster but meant a lot to me.
Today is also the Chinese New year so the rest of the group and myself used our energy to see a bit of the festivities. They were making ice sculptures on the streets and we got to see fireworks too. Such an eventful day...
Happy Chinese new year everybody.
