Blog post about my Benin artist residency experience

I spent two months at the Finnish-African cultural centre Villa Karo in Benin on an artist in residence programme earlier this year in search of inspiration for my next children's book. Here are a couple of pictures and some of my thoughts in writing about the experience, about the stories I heard and how they have influenced my book project.

Unfortunately the blog text is only in Finnish. Google translate will surely add another layer of absurdity to the crazy West African tales I came across.
