Opening at Örebro Läns Museum

Back from Örebro where the pictures from Rådhusets Julkalender is on display until February 23. Pay a visit at Örebro Läns Museum if You're in the neighborhood. I  met my sponsors from Karl-Johanskolan, the fine people from SOUL design who's the brains and hands behind the project and some of my dear fellow illustrators. I also got to meet the public.

Seriously, everybody was of course very nice and appreciative. And It's always rewarding to take part in events that are public as opposed to the solitary existence one leads for the most part. By oneself in the studio, all alone with all the difficult and important decisions of the trade. Ha! We even got to sign autographs!

Reproductions of my contribution (and of course all the other illustrators) is for sale here.

Yes, dinosaurs feasting on cinnamon buns. From the next Fille & Gonkan-book which I did the illustrations for.

It's funny - the things I liked to draw when I was 11-12 years old is still the funniest to draw now at 51. Spaceships, astronauts, robots, monsters, knights in armour on horses, castles, pirates, airplanes, cowboys and indians. And of course... DINOSAURS.

Will I ever grow up? I hope not.

Freak Guitar III

The logo I drew for Mattias IA Eklundh appears in some very gratifying places for a guitar-nerd like me. The fretboard inlay is the first time my work has been "published" in mother of pearl on rosewood. Nice!

Cheeck out the wonderful Caparison guitars here. And again, make shure You check out Mattias IA Eklundh's amazing world of music. Start here.

Deep Sea Angler Fish

My first drawing of the year - an angler fish. A scary beast who lives in the deepest oceans. For a book about world records in nature. I wouldn't mind if all the following drawings this coming year is this fun to make. The uglier the fish - the happier the illustrator!
