closet visit

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

black sandals, sweet buildings and bags of lavender. the first photo is from closet visit, a inspiring the selby-ish kind of site where stylists, photographers and so show part of their closets. i wouldn’t mind the sandals! although i probably have lot’s of look-alikes. why do you always go after the same things? i think i have like 10+ black cardigans in the exact same model!

voynich manuscript

Monday, July 25th, 2011

i think i have gotten a little obsessed with old books and particularly the 14th century old voynich manuscript. it’s a great mystery and the author, script and language are all still unknown. none of the plants depicted are identifiable even though they seem familiar at first glance and the same goes for the text, it’s constructed like a real language but is completely uncomprehensible. anyways perhaps i have a little too much spare time!

the first photo is from the manuscript, the second is by gabbjana and the third one is by pieter estersohn of leonardo ferragamos mansion.

Drömfabriken av Björn Vingård

Saturday, July 23rd, 2011

This autumn, the 31st of august to be more precise, a book that me and my illustrator/designer mother have illustrated together will be released. It’s called The Dream Factory (in swedish: Drömfabriken) and is about the journalism world in Sweden during the 60s and 70s. I’m very proud to have been a part of the visual project and Björn Vingård is such a charismatic and deligtful person to work with that it’s been a wonderful experience :) Hope you enjoy the simple trailer at least since there is no english translation yet.. Hopefully soon.

Nu i höst, den 31 augusti för att vara mer exakt, så lanseras boken Drömfabriken (utgiven av Piratfölaget) som jag och min mor (som är illustratör) har illustrerat tillsammans. Boken handlar om medievärlden och i synnerhet Bonnier under 60-talet och författaren Björn Vingård tar oss med rakt in i myllret av intressanta, knäppa, betydelsefulla, kända och alldeles vanliga människor bakom kulisserna på allt ifrån Expressen till Damernas Värld. En oerhört spännande, varm och humorfylld roman om den verklighet som kom att förändra hela vår tid.
