Time flies!

One year ago I blogged this image. It says ""In her dreams she could fly. In her dreams she could reach the spots that she never ever had been able to clean before." (klick for bigger).
Today when I´m pregaring for showing our apartment to people that perhaps want to buy it and also having a big birthday party this weekend, I´m sharing the same dreams as the stenmark lady.

Struggeling

This drawing is done. It´s very big and it was astruggle to get it done. I feel that life is a bit of a struggle right now, life and art and combining life and art. I have to get it to work, like this drawing. It has to work. Still not sure that it does though. (klick it to see it bigger!)

Filter

Today I had my first portfolio meeting. I decided to aim high and present my work for a magazine that I really want to work with, Filter. I like everything about it. The subjects they write about and how they give the whole story. The shape of the magazine and the graphic design. I would love to work with them!

I was nervous but not as nervous as I thought I should be. I think that I talked way to much. Next time I will try to let my images talk more!

Heavy post!


I´m in the "sharingmood". Going through old stuff and scanning them again after the computer crash. Images above is the portfolio that I applied to the master degree program with, 4 years ago. If I compare this portfolio to the one I made for the bachelor degree and with the work I´m doing now, it´s very different. This one has alot of "design" in it. I worked alot with project that where based on concepts, that had strong ideas behind the designs.
Nowadays I work with decoration and I love it!
1. portfolios backside
2. This project is about an movement we (me and 4 friends) where working with to provide people with design history. We held lectures and I also wrote an essay.
3. Graphic profile project for the university.
4. Projects about sustainability. I did alot of crafting in plastic. More here and here.
5. Working with communication. Pernilla and I made a project about hiding your face. How it´s sometimes ok (for doctors, in sports etc) and other times not. On the left side it´s a project about communications within a family. I made some scetches of bedding that had one patterned side (two bunnies going at it) and one colored. My idea was that If someone in the relationship didn´t feel up to it they could just turn the colored side up and vice versa.
6. Drawing: different illustrations.
7. patterns that communicate. This is a patterns that I made based on the TV´s test image.
8+9. Bachelor degree project. See more here.
well, that was that!

weekword, "history"

Weekword "history" was chosen by Anairam.
What I´m showing above is the portfolio that I applied to HDK bachelordegree program with, 7 years ago. When I think about history I think about stuff that changes everything: like getting accepted to the school I wanted to attend:)
The first 4 pages are design assignments that I solved.
1. favourite dish, showed in 2d
2. Make a tool for the home handyman.
3. Show a room
4. Interpretation of a smile
Then it was possible to show your own work in the last three pages.
What can I say... much water has flowed under the bridge since then!

Other weekworders this week are: Linda Sue, Sarah, Leenie , Anne, Valentina, Aris, Aimee, Esti, Alexandra, , Nicky, Sarah the jeweller, Line and Cindy!

Drawing

video
I´m working on a big drawing(A2). I find it hard with composition now, after drawing mostly patterns (where composition is kind of replaced with repetition and that is hard in another way.) But this is hard work. And I have to take breaks and then when I come back I have to fill spaces that I worked alot on with just black, to calm everything down. I work without scetching before, intuitively. Now I need food:)
