About me

Hi and Welcome 

My name is Cecilia Book Nikolovski and I am CCillustrator
Under the name CCillustrator I create illustrations, sewing hats, sewing gift bags and many other creative projects
I come from Sweden but has been living in many different countries 
Holland, England, Czech Republic, Russia and now currently living in Düsseldorf in Germany 
A lot of my inspiration to the blog and my illustrations comes from my experiences from living in different cultures and places. The challenges, the adventures and the culture clashes. After so many years abroad I I identify myself more as a Swede abroad rather then a Swede
My family: I live with my husband and our two children Mila 9 years old and Filip 6 years old 
Hobbies (apart from my million creative hobbies) : Horses (In my life before kids I was working with international top show jumping horses) Books and reading ( My ambition is one book per month) Boot camp ( not sure it is a hobby hobby but something I feel good to do regulary)

Påsken 2021

Vi flög till Stockholm och hängde några dagar hos mamma i deras nya lägenhet inne i stan. Barnen testade leka i Vasaparken rakt över gatan. Första vårsolen värmde äntligen lite. Det kändes härligt och konstigt att folk satt på uteserveringar och att restauranger och caféer var öppna. Prinsesstårta, semla och påskbakelse på en uteservering. Jag passade på att klippa mig eftersom frisörerna varit stängda sedan december och min man vuxit sig lång. Jag följde med Sofie ut till stallet och red hennes fina häst medan barnen hade movie night med mormor.  Nere i Vingåker fick vi äntligen träffa Bozze och morfar. Leka med bästis och grilla med farbror Christer. Min morfar var färdig vaccinerad och bjöd oss på våfflor. Barnen gick till frisören och blev kanonsnygga i håret. Lekt mycket med grannbarnen och njutit av att kunna spring och ut hur och när man vill.  En morgon vaknade vi till snö. Aprilväder. Filip och jag gick en före-frukost promenad i skogen för att njuta av snön. Eftersom det ändå

Chicken shit discussion

In my sketch-book I drew this illustration  In Sweden we have one big celebration 31 April - Valborgsmässoafton  It is a celebration for spring and the normal is to collect lots of people in parks and watch a big bonfire Also students meet up and drink and party a lot in normal times  But in this Corona Pandemic not so clever  So to prevent people to gathering  Lund a city down south of Sweden came up with the idea of spraying the parks with Chicken manure to prevent people from being able to meet up in the parks  How clever!  And I would have loved to hear the discussion amongst beige politicians when some genius cracked this idea

Recycling and Borrowed idea

In a small book-store in Kaiserswerth I saw some postcard with parts made of colorful pencil shavings and I thought it was a cute idea and I decided to try to make my own version of it. Also every week I am going through Mila school pen case helping to sharpening her pens if necessary ( her teacher keeps telling us parents to help with things like this) and the shavings are fluffy and colorful and it always hurts me a little to just throw it in the bin. Now I don't have to - I create different characters instead.  So here is my test round  The texts is inspired from one of Filip´s favorite book "Catch that plane" When the family is heading to the airport and the text is "as late as late can be" so I made my own version of it  What do you think?
