Some of my paintings of the book ‘Vive la ville!’ – ‘Otto in de stad’ have been printed on magnetic boards on which kids can stick all kind of vehicles, figurines and various other objects. Fun!
This wooden truck was parked for a weekend in our living room and was aimed as book- furniture on the Lannoo site at the Antwerp bookfair to promote the Otto-series. It arrived on a Friday as a blank object, got painted during a 3 day-weekend and got hoisted up on Tuesday…
(never saw it again, but it sure must be gathering dust in a warehouse somewhere in Flanders)
And the last one in the row for 2010. Published by Lannoo.
A book you read back and forth, just like the 2 previous Otto’s in the row: Otto rijdt heen en weer/Allers-Retous & Otto in de stad/Vive la ville!
And here is the third one also published in autunm 2010. This time by Albin Michel, France.
Ondertussen ook vertaald naar het Nederlands. ‘Het heerlijke eiland van koning Torelore’, Lannoo 2010.
In order of appearance was this the second book edited in autumn 2010. l’ABC de TOM, published by Hugo & Cie, France.
Always fun to play with letters.
