Lóa Hjálmtýsdóttir (Iceland) - Heim
I grew up in a suburb on a hill in Reykjavík. Although I moved away twenty years ago, the neighbourhood travels with me. The drawings and text together are called "Heim" which in Icelandic can both mean home and world. I graduated with a masters degree in creative writing this past spring and "Heim" served as a prologue to my final project which was a collection of autobiographical short stories. The illustrations are naive and colourless because that's the mood of my memories. At the moment my band is doing a virtual reality video with the drawings and rebuilding my old neighbourhood from my memory with the band dancing in my old stomping grounds.
