Hi, my name is Laivi Põder, I'm an illustrator from Estonia but currently living in The Netherlands.
I work digitally, using Procreate. I love creating peaceful and dreamy atmospheres. I use a lot of stamp brushes in my work, all of which are created from hand drawn images. Nature is my biggest source of inspiration and I try to go and explore woodlands, lakes, botanical gardens, parks and pretty much any natural places far and nearby as possible. I grew up in a very green little town, so I love the calm feeling that being in nature gives and I hope it reflects from my work, too.
"Little Dream" is a children's picture book written by Celeste Rankine and illustrated by Laivi Põder.
It tells a heartfelt story about a badger couple's long and difficult journey to grow their family. As the seasons roll by, the book shows the baby badger's adventures in the big beautiful world, until it's time to finally meet one another.
