Coloring with Tegnerforbundet

Mar 30, 2020

Do you suffer from long, colorless and uncreative days? Here we have the rescue that both young and old are guaranteed to enjoy!

We have invited four of our members - Lars Aurtande, Marianne Gretteberg Engedal, Kay Arne Kirkebø and Kristin Roskifte - to share one of their drawings (without colours), which YOU now have the opportunity to color to your liking! AND - the best thing is that you also contribute to a good cause in this corona time, as all the sales income goes to the artists.

All you have to do is click HERE , buy one or more drawings in the desired format - and you'll have the drawing(s) sent to your e-mail address in PDF format in print quality.

We would also be very happy if you would share your finished artwork with us! Use #fargeleggingmedtegnerforbundet to share or send us an email, preferably with info about the artist's name and age :)

A little about the artists:

Lars Aurtande (1973) has been a member of Tegnerforbundet since 2000. He has a long career as an illustrator for e.g. a. picture books, school books and magazines. In parallel, Aurtande has worked extensively on her own artistic projects. He creates images with references to folklore, science fiction and classic cartoon aesthetics. Lars Aurtande lives and works in Nesodden.

Marianne Gretteberg Engedal (1986) has been a member of Tegnerforbundet since 2020. In the winter, she works as a freelance illustrator under the alias Skinkeape in Oslo, and in the summer as a cook at Hardangervidda. Gretteberg Engedal won the Fashion Ministry's picture book prize 2019 for Pølsetjuven (Samlaget, 2019), which is her first picture book. She lives and works in Oslo and Hallingdal.

Kay Arne Kirkebø (1979) has been a member of Tegnerforbundet since 2011. He mainly works with drawing in image, video and book format. In his self-produced zines, he presents subtle, and occasionally threatening everyday scenes with a relaxed slacker streak. Kay Arne Kirkebø lives and works in Bergen.

Roskifte has made eight picture books, and in 2019 she was awarded the Nordic Council's children's and youth literature prize for her book Alle sammen teller (Magikon publishing house, 2018).
