Tales on Moon Lane

Having a day in London and admiring this beautiful children’s book shop and the window display @talesonmoonlane - as I’ll have my London book launch there and will get to paint the window. Also just met with @debsbrown1 as we are planning our Cambridge joined book launch in @childrenheffers. At least Sadness can’t complain about not getting enough attention! Just 1,5 more months and it’s out, 3d of January with @andersenpress. #WhenSadnessComesToCall #evaeland #independentbookshops

Book presentation in the Scheltema of ‘Als Verdriet op bezoek komt’, published by Leopold

Hello! After my book presentation of the Dutch edition ‘Als Verdriet op bezoek komt’ with Leopold, I had some lovely, quiet days with my family in the Netherlands. To all those who came along to the presentation I want to say thank you. Thank you for being wonderful people and wanting to share a bit of my journey and being supportive. Even though it makes me highly uncomfortable to be in the middle of the attention and have to speak in front of a group of people, I was in a room filled with lots of my favourite people and people I admire and am very fond of - which made it all a bit easier. I have discovered a new type of sadness however, which is mixed with a feeling of shortcoming,  as I only had a few minutes with everyone to have a conversation, sometimes after years of not seeing each other! Thanks to Ria, Rosanne and Manja from Leopold for being there and being a wonderful publisher and @scheltemaboekverkopers and Christiaan for being a wonderful host. I used to work at the Scheltema, a long time ago (which I forgot to mention), so it felt extra special to have my book launch there. Check my Instagram stories for some photos of the presentation.Only 1,5 month left before ‘When Sadness Comes to Call’ is officially released! I’ll be sharing more about that soon. If you think you might be interested in attending a book launch in London or Cambridge you can message me your e-mail address so you get a personal invitation. ‘When Sadness Comes to Call’, @andersenpress, January 3d. Artwork from 2016: collage from a short sequence without narrative with houses and red suns, made during my study. I might try turning this into a risograph print one day. #AlsVerdrietOpBezoekKomt #uitgeverijleopold #WhenSadnessComesToCall #evaeland#picturebook #childrensbookillustration #childrensbooks #workinprogress #collage #tinyhouse #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #childrensmentalhealth #letstalkaboutsadness #smallactsofselfcare #consolationandcomfort

Even though I’d love to go into hibernation and hide under the blanket – the world is still moving as fast as ever – and I have a book launch to prepare for! ⠀
If you happen to be in Amsterdam today (Friday 16th) feel free to drop by in the Scheltema (Rokin 9), and say hello and celebrate the launch of ‘Als Verdriet op bezoek komt’ with me. We are starting at 16.00 pm. All are welcome.⠀

This was one of the images from an earlier iteration of ‘When Sadness Comes to Call’, that didn’t make it into the book eventually.

Als Verdriet op bezoek komt

Before I forget: if you are in Amsterdam on the 16th and you would like to join me at the book launch of the Dutch edition of my book, ‘Als Verdriet op bezoek komt’ (Leopold, November 14th), let me know within a few days, so we can make sure there will be enough to drink for everyone 🥂. It will be at the @scheltemaboekverkopers, I used to work there, years ago!The UK edition of ‘When Sadness Comes to Call’ with @andersenpress will be available from 3d and we are planning a book launch on Blue Monday (apparently the saddest day of the year). So just hang in there for a bit longer... #alsverdrietopbezoekkomt #evaeland #uitgeverijleopold #whensadnesscomestocall
