Illustration, drawing, art and the endless battle aginst boredom.

Me and my daughter drew this lovely house yesterday. One of many "dream homes" we have made together. I think it's fair to say that this one is inspired by the bathhouse in Miyazaki's movie Spirited Away.
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.
