We're so cool/cold today because we're going to Norway! It's a young artist who is welcoming us into her abode, while we're welcoming her onto FML, crazy. Put your gloves, hat and scarf on, Norway, here we come!
-What's your name and surname?
-Ida Eva Margrethe Neverdahl. Neverdahl is my surname.
-Where does "Neverdahl" come from?
-Neverdahl is... A valley somewhere in Norway I think. "Never" has something to do with trees. And "dal" means valley. So it's a valley of never... whatever that is x3
-And here comes my next question, where do YOU come from?
-Stavanger in Norway ! It's a city on the west coast
-Is Norway as cold as we say?
-And don't know what people say! But its cold, yes. But not so much where I live. Instead of having really cold winters like many other parts if the country, it's just a bit cold all year round :'I
-Do you have to wear gloves to draw? If so, yes, it's cold in Norway.
-Haha, no! But I have to wear triple gloves when I'm outside though :I
-How old are you ?
-Are you still at school?
-With a specialization in art?
-Nope. Science. I'm not sure why I'm there though. I'm just surrounded by wannabe-engineers and doctors. While all I want to do in life is to draw comics.
-So I feel like a fish out of water sometimes. Well, the reason why I'm there is basically because my twin brother is there. I don't want to let him become smarter than me! That I can't allow.
-Tell us more about him
-We compete in most things. Not in sports anymore though. Because he has certain advantages (being a boy and all)
-Oh, I'm sure there's one domain where you can easily beat him ?
-Yes it is… drawing ! But he's very good at that too.
-You're better. We know this by now. And he's not featured on FML ! So, what are your next projects?
-I'm illustrating a children's book at the moment. Aaand I'm also just working on making a comic blog.
-Why did you choose this story?
-Because it gave me the opportunity to draw a fat baldy man. My favourite thing to draw!
-Now that you're featured on FML, you can say anything you want to the FML audience !
-Ehm. Hm. Maybe something in Norwegian. Brun ost og torsk er best, Men ikke på en vaffel, og ikke sammen. Norge er et kult land. Det er ikke isbjørner her. Hvis du måtte bruke google oversetter for å skjønne dette, er du ikke en nordmann. Men du er kul likevel.*

And be ready dearest readers, because during July we'll be welcoming artists that we've already featured on FML, and not only will they be providing you with brand new illustrations but also illustrated interviews. Yihaa!
If you want to be the next published artist, send an email to alice [at] fmylife.com including a link to your website/blog/DA. But DON'T send your illustration right away! You need first to get in touch with me, and I'll tell you what you have to do!
