Fastelavn ("Shrovetide")

Illustration & graphic design

To dress up and partying has always been a part of life. ​The opportunity became extraordinary to the old nordic tradition "Fastelavn"("Shrovetide"), as masks and outfits wiped the social skull.  The fast-paced time was like a valve in a daily life marked by strict rules and hard work but only for adults. It is only in recent times that the permanent name has become the children's party.  Traditional events include "slå katten af tønden" ("hit the cat out of the barrel"), which is somewhat similar to using a piñata.

These are the illustrations are for a flyer i made for Klaverfabrikken, whom also hosted a Shrovetide event.
