For Children and Grandparents - for Dogs Fans - for Fans of Dog Breed Beagle

Renowned Danish author Orla Nygaard and World of Art Award Winning Danish Artist Asbjorn Lonvig have so far published 3 children's books on who administers print on demand publishing.

The World's best Beagy Beagy will be Beagy

Two Books have been published in English. They are about a family who buys a dog (a Beagle).
The father is skeptical because he does not think he has time enough to look after the dog.
However, he becomes so fond of the dog that he decides to bring up and train the dog himself.
Unfortunately, things do not turn out the way he thinks and hopes. Time after time things go wrong
and very far from what he had expected, which results in a number of comical and bizarre situations.
You can see comprehensive previews on LuluPress of the books: Preview "The World's Best Beagy"
and preview of "Beagy will be Beagy".

You can order these 2 books by clicking on the motifs shown above - you will be navigated directly to the books on the LuluPress markedplace.

The 2 books mentioned above have been combined and published in Danish.
The book title is: "Biggi Verdens bedste Hund".

Biggi Verdens bedste Hund

Nygaard & Lonvig, Denmark is very satisfied about feedbacks.
One of the most positive is this:

Dear Asbjorn.
I wrote to you when I received the books that I thought they are beautiful.
I liked the titles of the books. Very memorable. Children and parents can relate easily to the titles and
chapter titles. The colors of the covers and the art on the covers is very appealing for children as well as parents.
I love your geometric art and think it goes really well with the story contents.The inside of the books are very nicely done.
The page layouts are very clean and the art and story go really well with each other.
One can follow the story easily by looking at the pictures.

I liked the stories very much. Each had humor and a strong concept of family values.
The stories are lessons as well, but these lessons do not distract from the fun aspect of the book.
For very young children, each chapter could be made into its own book.
The books are WONDERFUL!
All my best,

"South African Joy" by Asbjorn Lonvig, DK - Official Licenced Product of the 2010 FIFA World Cup™

"South African Joy"

2010, Inks on canvas/Archival Inks on cotton, 84 x 59,4 cm (33.1” x 23.4”), edition 210
Click on "South African Joy" below
and download a high resolution image for press coverage.

A South African Art Publisher MMX Art in Cape Town contacted me.
MMX Art alias 2010 International Fine Art is licensed to use the phrase “Official Licensed Products of the 2010 FIFA World Cup™” by FIFA.
5 artists from each of the 32 qualifying countries to
2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™
were selected to participate in the 2010 International Fine Art project and form the 2010 International Fine Art Collection.
After signing a contract I got the “Artistic Brief” from 2010 International Fine Art:

“The world is coming home to Africa, the cradle of humankind, the site where the story of our species started. It is – in essence – the home of all humanity.
It is also the location for the greatest sporting event in the world – the 2010 FIFA World Cup
TM – the first time in its history that the tournament has been staged in Africa.
The artwork must bring together the elements of this African heritage and fuse it with the energy and excitement of the World Cup, the heights of athletic excellence, the favor of football enthusiasts, and pride of your country’s participation in the tournament.
The original must incorporate at least an element of football in order to celebrate this extraordinary event being brought to African soil.”

The symbolism of "South African Joy" by Asbjorn Lonvig

The Acacia tree and the Baobab Tree are significant trees in South Africa.

I am looking for my inner eye
giraffes eating the leaves of an Acacia tree.

The South African Savannah in the East, the bush and dessert in the West are the domicile of a lot of exotic animals such as
Zebras, Flamingos, Elephants, Lions, Penguins, and Giraffes.
To me the most outstanding of them is the
In “South African Joy” symbolized by a giraffe skin.

The sun is important to all of us.
In most of South Africa there is subtropical climate witch has an impact on everything.
On nature as well as on people’s conduct and behavior.

From maps we know the shape of the African Continent.
From the name we can guess where South Africa is, but I did not know exact shape of South Africa on beforehand.

FIFA World Cup stadiums in South Africa are scattered around the country:
The stadiums are in Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg, Bloemfontein, Port Elizabeth, Nelspruit, Polokwane, Rustenburg, and Pretoria.

In a very short time – when the FIFA World Cup has started - the world will recognize the shape and the colors of the Republic of South Africa's flag:
Red symbolizes the struggle for freedom.
Black and White the different peoples of South Africa.
Yellow the country's mineral wealth.
And green and blue symbolize the country’s fertility and its magnificent scenery and wildlife.

Desmond Tutu – you know, the former archbishop who is always talking and always smiling – called South Africa’s people the Rainbow Nation.
That was because of the country's wonderfully diverse, colourful, and utterly unique society.
Furthermore, South Africa’s National Motto is "Unity in Diversity".

I know about an explorer that drew in his car down through the African continent from the Strait of Gibraltar to South Africa. He told that everywhere kids were playing soccer.To accommodate all the soccer playing children the soccer field is a double field. Double Soccer is the name of the game.There are 4 goals. Two balls in different colors.I have established a Facebook group to form the exact rules.
“Help making the Double Soccer rules: As a point of departure I have mentioned a few keywords to the Facebook group members: Fun, fast, exhausting, tactics, strategy, chess, exciting to look at, appealing to electronic medias”.

The imaginative kids of Africa will probably some day amuse themselves by playing double soccer. You may percept many different run patterns in “South African Joy” – run patterns of players’ movements as you will see them on the stadiums of South Africa. Zigzag, forth and back etc. Stepping up the stairs – maybe reaching fame.
Some day an African nation might win the FIFA World Cup™.
