Pikatto, pikattu, pikatta… Pikatti!

Sometimes the best things just happen accidentally – and things like scribbling around a bit while you are doing something else – talking on the phone for example – is a really good thing because your consiousness isn’t judging the thing you are scribbling and telling you „Oh, that looks weird, stop that“. Almost a little bit like the Surrealists did their écriture automatique (I had to give a presentation about this issue while studying Fine Arts and I found it absolutely fascinating).

And so I was recently talking in the phone, scribbling and finally found something on my paper I really liked (these two creatures are only two details of a piece of paper that was filled with a lot of stuff):


And those two look somehow different than the rest of my creatures (to me – maybe not from a more distant point of view from someone else) that I thought I really should try to make something with them. Somehow they gave me a feeling of little creatures who live far in the north, maybe in Iceland or Lapland. Somewhere I found the Inuit word Pikatti which means „companion“. And I think that fits perfectly to these little creatures.


My daughter has a little friend who is a very, very cute little girl, absolutely adorable – but she hardly ever smiles and has such a special character. And although she is such a little girl – you better don’t mess with her because she can get pretty angry :-)

I thought of her when I made the first little Pikatti girl: Nana

    Nana ist so perfekt…perfekt wie du es beschreibst. Ich könnte mir vorstellen mit ihr durch Island zu reisen, das macht sicher viel Spaß ;o) und am Besten sind doch eh die Zufälle, wenn dieses süße Wesen eigentlich nur aus Versehen beim Telefongekrizzel entstanden ist….sowas von toll!!!
    Liebe Grüße!
