Book me for courses

As mostly of my books comes from my life I want the children to find stories from there. I tell them about myself and how I got some ideas. Give them simple writing tips. As I´m also an illustrator I show what the picture add. A funny moment is when I draw first and they draw after without knowing what they are drawing.

Jeanette Milde

What is your name and how would you briefly describe what you do?

My name is Jeanette Milde. I´m an illustrator and author of Children´s Books. I also illustrate for magazines, websites and companies. One client is Arla foods, which is a big milk company in Sweden. I mostly draw and write for the milkpackage. I love this job because I get to meet farmers and cows. I do know quite a lot about cows and farming. I guess I was a farmer in my past life.

Have you received any awards or prizes?

2002 I received the Elsa Beskowplaqueté for the book När jag mötte Carl-Einar (When I met Carl-Einar) which I have written and illustrate. 2004 me and Grethe Rottböll won, with the book HITTEBOKEN (How to find things), the swedish part in the nordic competition for children´s books. The bookcompany Rabén & Sjögren was one of the holder of the competition.

What’s the best thing about working with you, from a clients point of view?

I´m creative with lots of idéas, good listener and have a sense of humour. If you have a heavy or sensitive subject – I can light it up with easygoing drawings. For example I´ve done drawings regarding senility and impotence. Then it´s importante to use humour without step on anyones feet.
