this artist (the last two images), she has made great illustrations for children's books, besides she is a painter, a kind of Neo-constructivist. The only thing about her illustrations for kids is that kids generally don't really like them. I imagine, and I also recall from my own childhood that they were too freaky, I could not figure out what they represented, they were too surreal. The colours have been always appealing though. Today I appreciate them and I like her books conceived as objects, which I had not known before. They are both hard to get or find at all. I needed to give a try to some of her paper heads. The little guy took over the job soon after I started. He said it was a good way to pass the time while he waits to go to see his friend. He made another one, more to his style and interests.

We said to the little guy: All that Minecraft stuff you rattle around... But what is really important for you in the real world? ... Except for love to mummy.
- Love to Daddy.
- Ok, I don't mean that. Is it basketball? Guitar? Maths? Sarah? Rosa?
- Happiness, he said after little thinking.
And seeing that we liked it he added: Happiness and love to mummy and daddy.
The parents have been satisfied.

So you are probably wandering whether I am serious that I want something like I show in the pictures. Almost something like that. I made it while attending a kid's workshop in a kid's theater with Domík, the kids were supposed to build romantic houses, Domík did not want to have anything to do with it at first but I delved deeply in. The outcome much owes to the materials that I had at hand. But it still kind of resembles my vision. I am not going to have a cheetah, though.
I have collected some ideas for the house here.

buildings that had been monuments and under the care, the resolution was later cancelled for obvious reasons. I am amazed how much they enjoy building. It might help the neighborhood at some places, that is sure, the rest will be just filled in.
The whole open area at Bubny train station, where the tracks are now, will be mostly filled in with large blocks of houses and supposedly a park. I don't know how the park will function. Will it be surrounded by apartment blocks or offices? If the second the park might turn into a ghost zone in the evenings and weekends. Some lift-up, on the other had, would do good around Holešovické nádraží, where they had smashed the old Holešovice back in the 1970s and 1980s, a typical periphery from the 1920s, mostly single houses and courtyards and small gardens. My dad liked walking there, he told me only recently. I have liked it too but I actually never saw it in real. Now the Holešovice railway station stands there, and wasted land around. It is obvious they had destroyed more that they could deal with. The first picture shows a house from the old Holešovice, it is and it has always been a pub, maybe a hotel long time ago.
