Last year in March I already wrote how our "East or West, home is best" picture was created. One of the reasons were the events on Maidan square in Ukraine. In many months later, just in December 2014, we realised that the picture has one more link to Ukraine. We realized that just now because in Estonian the proverb sounds "Everywhere is good, home is best" and although we had in English, too, we didn't pay so much attention to it. The things that are going in Ukraine are more or less related to one main issue - will the country turn to East or West. In this meaning our picture is even more linked to Ukraine and we understood that just now :)
More interesting stuff happend to this picture in December :) We were at home, watching local news on TV and saw how Estonian women made woolen socks as an aid to Ukraine. Then we had an idea that maybe we could send our postcards (which are by the way in Ukrainian flag colors) to Ukraine. Of course they don't warm you and you can't eat them, but we felt that such small present could cheer just a little bit some Ukrainians. Just to show them that their dreams and wishes mean something and there are many people in the world who think about them.
By lucky chance we met our friend Nestor in the mall couple of days later. He told us that he's going to Ukraine after Christmas to see how aid collected in Estonia will be shared in Ukraine. Nestor liked our idea to share postcards and just few hours later a package with several hundreds of postcards with blue tits went right to his luggage. Have a nice trip blue tits and hopefully you'll give at least a couple of smiles to the world!
Wohoo, new picture from the proverbs series is ready! Peeter is brave pilot and the proverb is "Have Courage and the World Is Yours".
Shortly why we chose this proverb and profession for Peeter, who was one of the winners in our Camorka photo contest. This dog got to his new master Annika several years ago, when Peeter was found on the highway. Annika saw that Peeter had rough past and she just couldn't drop the dog to the shelter. It seemed that much better idea would be to take him home, where two friendly labradors were waiting :)
It took time, but step by step Peeter got over his fears and in some time his small, but brave heart opened. That's why it felt right to make Peeter a pilot. A character who's brave and looks forward.
Have courage and the world is yours. Courage that helps you overcome the problems. Courage to help those who are in need.Comments (1)
This year our webshop www.luckylaika.com has started to sell a little bit. At last :) Sale numbers are still small, so we won't be
bragging disgracing ourselves here, but we can show where our customers live and where is the most of them.
Tallinn and Tartu and countys of those had logically the highest sale results. They were followed by Pärnu, Võru, Viljandi and islands and little bit by Lääne-Viru county.
We sold products on Etsy to North-America and Europe, but marked on this map only the customers who found us through our own webshop. Most of the customers came from Russia, followed by Finland, UK and Ireland and Germany. Lithuania supported us from the Baltic States.
We hope that next year there will be much more destinations and sale numbers will be much higher. That's "must be" :)Add comment
The series of professions is getting ready soon. We've made more than half of planned 27 pictures. The recent ones are illustrator, genetic engineer and sailor.
Olivia recorded the process of drawing a new picture. Drawing the genetic engineer (for our professions series) took about four hours. In this video we made it more than 70 times faster and so the video is less than four minutes long ;)Add comment
Today we had our 1000th fan at Lucky Laika Facebook page. That isn't huge number, but makes us happy anyway :) Hurray!
Today, on the 20th of August, our latest picture from the proverbs series was created. It's called "The word is stronger than the army" (in English better know as "The pen is mightier than the sword"). This animal and the proverb are both symbolic for several reasons. Lion is considered to be the King of all animals and so it suits well to celebrate the 20th picture. It's also still the time of Leos in the August. So greetings to all Leos!

Song "Lucky Ones" from our own Kerli. That's just about us :)Add comment
When we started with our company, the series of "Professions" was one of our first series. Unfortunately we didn't manage to produce cool products for this series and slowly it faded out. Now we've decided to re-open this series. Even more, we'll create brand new pictures. Olivia is drawing each picture from the scratch in new style and the result seems much better to us. At the moment we have already three professions: police officer, ballet dancer and fireman.
