The green house.



I made some illustrations in DN today, for an article about P.O. Enquist, celebrating his 80th birthday. I built a small version of his childhood home, a green wooden house that has become somewhat famous through his writings. Ten writers wrote a piece each about him and the telephone chords symbolize the connection between each writer and Enquist's body of work, or something like that (: 

A very fun assignment to do and a bit different than what I usually do. Notice those birches? Took about a zillion photos to get them in the right places (they're mirrored in the over head film windows).

That's all for now! *_^

Postcards for scenkonstmuseet.

At the beginning of the summer I made these postcards for Scenkonstmuseet. They have a workshop where kids can come and make instruments out of recycled materials and they wanted to update their instructional postcards. A bit difficult to figure out how to fit everything since some of them have a lot of text, but it was such a fun job! And I loved drawing again after doing so much paper illustrations lately.

When I first started drawing (back when I first applied to art school) my plan was to work with children-illustration (maybe childrens books) but since graduating I've mostly done illustrations for magazines and in other grow up-contexts (which is also very fun to do) so it was nice to get to do these, hopefully there will be other jobs like this one in the future!

Now I'm taking a break to go out and climb rocks in the woods with Cosmo. Hopefully we will meet another dog who he can play with, that will make his day and then render him unconscious for a couple of hours, so that I can work. If not, I will work anyway, while he runs around the table holding an empty coca cola-bottle, grunting like a pig. Either way, it will be fun/chaotic. (:

Hope your week has started out great! *_^

..:: C ::..

I got a dog! He's an Italian truffle-dog, and he will be 13 weeks old this Sunday.

He loves sausage, classical music, rock climbing, peanut butter, digging for treasure, meeting small children, sleeping under a lounger in the garden and running through the ivy underneath the apple tree.


His name is Cosmo!

Happy Friday *_^

Vacation (sort of) (:

It's almost August and I haven't checked in on the blog for weeks and weeks. What have I been doing? Working with paper stuff (I'll show you when they're published), reading lots of books and chasing around a nine week old puppy (!!!) who is simply too fast to photograph.



Hope that you all are having a great summer! *_^
