I think it's interesting what happens when you add texture to a surface. It changes the "rythm" of the composition. So when I add stubble to the piece below I think of it as adding eighth note hi-hat beats.
Born in 1962 in Arvika, Sweden, and have lived in Göteborg since 1983. I studied at HDK School of Design and Craft, and The Nordic Art School in Kokkola, Finland during 1983-1988. I received my Master in Graphic Design in 1988, and since then I've been working as a freelance Illustrator/Graphic Designer.
My original intent was to be a musician (I play the guitar). And the art/design studies was simply a way to get me to a bigger city where I hoped to
find people to play with. I'm quite happy with how things turned out though, 'cause I really like drawing and I don't like being away from
home (which musicians often are).
I continued to play though, and I actually did find some people to play with. At design school. We did a lot of gigging and recorded two CD's.
I still play the guitar, some trombone, and sing in a choir.
