2012 has been a very exciting year for my blog. It all started with The Girl with Seven Horses that I published in january. It's the first project I've done that has really spread through the internet like a fire. Booooooom just put it in their Top 15 of 2012 list. And it's my only post where I've recieved over 100 comments. I'm truly thankful for the amazing support from my fans and followers. Posters from the series where ordered from all over the world, from Australia to Brazil, from Canada to Portugal. Thank you!
one week workshop where the theme was dreamy fairytale photos. The school is called Lofoten Folkhøgskole and is in the very north of Norway. They have a new catalogue now, I'm even on page 9 or something.
All the nordic and fishermen themes in my illustrations comes from my years there.
Puzzled S[h]elf and was pretty much finished with my three years at Ingvard Kamprad Design Center here in Lund. I learned a lot during these three years but as it's looking now I'm searching for work as a graphic designer and not as and industrial designer. Click here to see more projects that I did during my education.
one week holiday at my sisters in Italy. I played with her dog and cat and with their two big horses. They are renovating a big "castle" and the top photo is taken in the castles old kitchen. The bottom is of me in the stables braiding Abes tail.
recent illustrations I've made... and have a pretty hard time looking at my old since I think they're somewhat terrible.
self-portraits tasks on ulicam open for anyone to join. In the end there were very few people delivering photos so I decided to end it. Haven't heard any complains so maybe it was for the best :)
shop! That was so much fun, I'm so thankful that sites like Society6 exist, what an incredible place for artists to sell their work. Seeing t-shirts and iphone cases with my illustrations on instagram and blogs is incredible.
Ryan recently died) and beautiful Laura has entered a new project that will continue next year.
So, I will wrap this up by thanking you for all the support and that you keep returning to my site! It's been a great year for the blog with a lot of new followers. Even my facebook page has gone from 0 to 1863 likes in one year. My official homepage got a great facelift during the summer and is now frequently updated. My shop will keep selling new illustrations all year.
I hope I will see you next year too.
Happy new year!
