Lola appeared to me in the flesh on a train from Copenhagen to Jutland. I was visiting my Danish boyfriend and we found ourselves sharing a carriage with a couple and their little girl, who kept bombarding them with questions while they were trying to read the paper. She looked like a pixie and, although she was clearly driving her parents to distraction, I found her mesmerising. When I got home, I sketched a picture of her from memory and set about finding a story that suited her. My boyfriend had a younger sister called Sofie and, when I looked through family albums, I found she bore a resemblance to my pixie girl. So I drew on tales he told me about their childhood.
