My name is Tania and I created a children book, which I dream to publish in 2017.
I came to Sweden from Ukraine and I wait for the work and resident permit for more then a year. It can take them TWO YEARS to decide about my future!
I am not allowed niether to work nor going outside the country before Migration board makes a decision.
Because I have no rights to work, I can’t collect some money for publishing my new children’s book. So, I sit here in Sweden, and create a text, illustration and design for this book despite of any challenges and without any payment for my work.
I believe in this book and I am done with illustrations! The Moon Cat book will be for kids 1-5 years old. I want to publish it as a beautiful set of double-sided cardboard images with a poetry. It is only little left, - to publish it!
For the publishing of 1000 sets it needs 5200$
When my dream comes true and this book will be published, I will present it during the range of workshops for children in the libraries and pre-schools in Sweden. I will be able to survive and create new art from the modest profit of selling these books.
My beautiful book will be also able to travel, while I will not be able myself.
And most interesting perhaps is, that I plan to send something very nice to everyone who supported this project! Just leave your contact!
Sending lots of LOVE to You all!
