The wonderful world of YapYap
YapYap or Kristina Gordon is the last artist to enter our little Art Project with her fantastic contribution and introduction to the wonderful world of YapYap.
Kristina Gordon is a Graphics designer and Illustrator who lives in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Her work takes place in the fantastic Yap Forest which is full of all sorts of creatures, from the always happy Yap, a happy-go-lucky sorta fella who is full of energy and friendly happiness, to his best friend Pusmis, who is always pulling pranks but is good hearted underneath. There are many more characters in the forest of YapYap, and some are a bit more sinister.
Kristina have always found a lot of inspiration in folklore, especially in the Scandinavian, a lot of the characters are inspired by the old tales of the little creatures living in the corners of our eyes. Kristina has always been intrigued by the idea of secret worlds coexisting next to our own and as a kid she checked many closets to see if there indeed was a magical forest behind the winter coats, “One day I say! One day I shall find it”.
I thought I should try and list some of the sources of inspiration I have, there are many so here are just a few. I grew up reading my mother’s childhood Elsa Beskow books, I love her fine style of illustration, her delicate worlds. As a child I had the typical love/fear relationship with Mommins, everyone I know thought they were terrifying and yet fascinating. As a grownup I’ve fallen complete in love with the Hayao Miyazaki movies. And a walk by the ocean, next to the windswept pine trees or at Tegners Museum, always gets my mind racing. – Kristina Gordon
