So I have been here in Norway for a while now and all I can say is that I love literally EVERYTHING.
Back in my first day at Magikon Forlag, I remember being so nervous, but now it feels completely normal to say “I’m going to work! Bye!” to my awesome and wonderful hosts every morning.
My boss, Svein Størksen and his wife Kristin Roskifte are the coolest people ever. They are both illustrators and Svein also a publisher, which is pretty amazing! Imagine publishing a book someday!
I’m having such a nice time at Magikon! I have been doing some covers for books, also helping a bit with some other books…
Also thanks to Svein I have met a lot of people: famous writers, more illustrators, other publishers…
Here in Norway, Edvard Munch is the most important artist ever, so they have a museum called Munch even! Svein and I went to the preview of an exhibiton there and it was just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I loved it. I felt in love with those paintings!

Some days before going to see Munch’s exhibition, I went to another one of a japanese artist called Murakami.
It was so nice and colorful! I even got a poster of one of the paintings, sadly there was no clothing merchandising or would have bought it all!
So… in general I am enjoying this, it is being such a good experience! I will for sure come back and stay longer, maybe not even booking a ticket back to Spain!
