vanilya kışı / the story behind the book

eng In December 2016 we went to Maşukiye, a small town by the mountains with an amazing view of the lake Sapanca with my author friend Zeynep Alpaslan. We both were having difficult times and for a week there we sat by the fire talk about life, universe and everything else. We draw, wrote poems and get back to our homes is Istanbul. Zeynep, later was influenced highly from the nature of Maşukiye and she wrote haiku poems. Final Kultur Sanat Publishing loved the poems and wanted to publish it and I would be the illustrator of the book. On the following summer we went back to Masukiye and I illustrated the poems there. This time we were full of joy and hope. Diffucult times were passed and they became art. The book was loved so much that the first edition was sold out after three months and had it’s second edition. Here is the process of creating this beautiful book.

tr Zeynep Alpaslan’ın yazdığı benim resimlediğim Final Kültür Sanat Yayınlarından çıkan Vanilya Kışı’nın çok güzel bir hikayesi var. Zeynep’in sonsözde de anlattığı gibi 2016 yılının Aralık ayında ikimiz de hayatımızın zor bir döneminden geçerken biraz rahatlamak için Maşukiye’ye gitmemizle başladı her şey. Gündüzleri bahçede dolaşıyor, geceleri birbirimize öyküler anlatıyor, şiirler yazıyor, resimler yapıyorduk. Daha sonra ikimiz de İstanbul’daki evlerimize döndük. Zeynep Maşukiye’nin doğasından o kadar etkilenmişti ki duygularını harika haiku şiirler olarak yazdı. Ardından Final Kültür Sanat Yayınları kitabı yayınlamak istedi ve çizimlerini de ben yapacaktım. Bu defa yaz mevsiminin sonlarında ikimiz beraber tekrar Maşukiye’ye gittik ve ben kitabın illüstrasyonları orada açık havada yaptım. İkimiz de neşeli, umutlu ve hevesliydik.  Kitap o kadar sevildi ki ilk üç ay içinde ilk baskısı tükendi ve ikinci baskıyı yaptı. Bu kitabın yayınlanmasında emeği geçen herkese içten teşekkürlerimi sunarım.

Dec 2016, Maşukiye

derler ki

There is a gathering of the storytellers at Mardin Museum between 2-8 October.

I made a tapestry for the exhibition derler ki (they say so) which will be exhibited on both sides. Exhibition focuses on the inner pains of the participants. My work is called limbs unknown. Which is a subject I’ve been working on lately. I will post more works about that.

Here are photos from my work and process of the tapestry.
