Had the grand honour of working with Hello There on Aviciis game Gravity. I Art Directed, did concepts and some final 3D bits for the game. The project was crazy tight but a great amount of fun. Get your swiping thumb all greased up, you'll be needing it!

My dads charming duo is back in a new book! For those of you unaware of these guys I can tell you that the "real" Munken & Kulan is told by Åke in front of a live audience. These performances are recorded and sold. Back in the day it was recorded on cassettes, now on CD's. There are more than 35 CD now with two stories on each CD. The CD's alone have sold more than a whooping 100000 copies! That's just crazy. This is the third book made from the stories. But I have to admit: it's much better to listen to it and get your own mental image than to look at these things. Long live the classically told stories.

To keep my portrait up to date I've set a new rule. Need to paint a new one every time I change glasses. That's really not that often since the last time I changed was about six years ago, I think. But here's the new pair. Let's see how long I can keep these bad boys.
PS: No fancy making of video like last time. Sorry. This computer isn't really up to the whole capturing and painting simultaneously standards. Hope to upgrade some time in the not too distant future. Then I'll make some new ones.
Had the grand joy of ending up exchanging a few electronic letter with non other than illustrator guru Svein Nyhus. He talked to me about the gravity of strong styles in illustration and how it effects the expression about finding your style and getting inspired by others. He had lots of great thoughts in the matter and it was all very inspiring. I'm finding my own creations very dull and uninspired from time to time and I need to step out of my comfort zone Its of course a long process to change and clarify your voice. I haven't got much further since our talk but I feel very inspired. Have been sketching a lot lately trying to get in shape for the summer and autumn. Searching for new exiting project now. So if you happen have one. Give me a call.

Here's one example of a series of illustrations for Salming who are heading into some new territory. Now log of and go out there and exercise for a bit and you might just end up as fit as this guy. Some speed lines like this would definitely make running a bit more fun. Maybe just running naked with no eyes would make the run a bit more interesting? Find your style!

Here's some cut outs from a CD/DVD production that is fresh off my desk. Nice to try out some linoleum print style. And the more folksy tunes in the music lead to the very classic kurbits patterns.

The wintersports book also getting a sequel. This one arrives in time for summer. And this might shock you, but its set during summer! On an island off the west coast of Sweden. I feel right at home.
Helped some friends out with some illustrations for their wedding. I think you could get some sort of story out of these character. You can immediately see some interesting villains to add to the drama. "The Dish Pile Danger Man", "Evil Dr Sockonfloor" and don't forget the legendary evil simply known as "The Monster in law".
We now live indoors again.
