this little person is called Nanainen, an alter ego or an inner child of Nana, maybe both of them

she was born in Lapland, raised by her shaman grandma who knitted her mittens and sewed by hand her “nutukkaat” with the skin of a reindeer’s legs

she wonders and wanders and observes little and big things happening around her

she is pretty allergic to the consumerism and the pollution, she would just like to spend goods time with her animal buddies, plant some organic flowers and live in peace

she has many friends but she needs to spend a lot of time alone, in silence to listen to her heart because that’s the only way for her to stay grounded and be real

she prefers being than appearing

she believes in love, without conditions, that universal superpower available to all that makes miracles happen

are you in love?


Nanainen has had adventures in numerous finnish magazines since 2011, the year when she won a comic strip competition and still pops up always when needed
