Hello Kitty!

Yesterday Belgian illustrator and author Kitty Crowther visited the Nordic Watercolor Museum in Sweden to talk about her book Le petit homme et Dieu (approx. The Little Man and God, our transl.). Her visit was part of the museum’s work towards exploring the potential of pictorial storytelling. Le petit homme et Dieu is about the friendship between a boy and his little unusual friend – God. Does God exist? If she/he exist – who is she/he?

– There are so many ways to believe, Kitty told the audience. I believe in everything you can´t see.

She also talked about the fact the ending of her stories is not always certain when she starts writing them.

–I do have an idea, but I cannot formulate it until I´m actually there. And I don´t create stories, the stories choose me.

Kitty Crowther received the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award in 2010.
