Join us for a special CCWA presentation (open to the public) by Norwegian illustrator and picture book author Kristin Roskifte. Kristin has made eight picture books with topics like crowds, surreal dream homes, queueing and animals with body issues. She is inspired by how different yet alike people are. 

She never leaves the house without a sketchbook, the result is an extensive library of captured moments, thoughts, ideas, patterns, plans, quotes, hopes and dreams. She feels connected to all the people she has ever drawn, they are always with her through the sketchbooks, although most of them will never know.

Roskifte will show a lot of examples from her sketchbook library, and talk about how keeping sketchbooks has influenced her ideas, her work and her life.
