It was worth the wait anyway. Tove Jaanson is one of my all time favorite illustrators. Her quirky drawings and use of line work is quite somthing else, so I was thrilled to see a large colletion of original line drawings from her personal collection and sketchbooks on show at the gallery. The thing I love about the Moomins is that the cartoon is a bit dark - a sinister edge. The Moomins themselves are cute little hippo like creatures, but there are lots of other weird and wonderful other characters hiding in the stories too.
Loved this windswept Moomin Mama!
