Pattern workshop

This week I have been very bad at posting but better at teaching. Two pattern workshops, one for my graphic design students and one for my illustraion class. I enjoy teaching so much and my students are very talented and fast learners which makes it even more fun!

Great days!

These days is alot about the upcoming christmasmarket that we are arranging. Top images is where it will be held (Wernstedtshallen at Röhsska). Here you can find all the imformation about it (in swedish) if you want to apply!
In the studio I am working on something that hopefully will end up as a tray to sell at the market.

One day in the studio

One day of meetings in the studio. First I had a meeting with my new markers and a big, new kind (for me), of paper. Then Elisabeth, karin and kristin came and we talked about the christmasmarket we are arranging. (Alexandra took the photo of us!) Then rest of Myrkott came and we worked on our new print, labyrinth.

Last weekend I sold the childrens used clothes and toys at a childrens market.
Someone said that it takes about 70 laundries before the chemicals are gone in new cloths and that is just an bonus with buying used. I like the idea with trading cloths, selling our old and buying someone elses used. And I like the thrifting part, to make nice finds.
I made so many nice finds for the kids and also some for myself. Like the toys above!

In sweden there is a saying that goes something like "being away is good but the best with being away is coming home". Thats how our little family feels after being away from home for three weeks!
Since some time back we have "ekolådan" delivered to out door once a week. It´s filled with ecologic fruits and vegetables and it´s fantastic. If you live in sweden, go get one!

Not much posting lately!

I am alive, just not kicking that much!
Past weeks I havn´t been to the studio at all. When I go there next week I will continue with the Elvis comission work. The thing with comissions is that they can often change. First they wanted me to
draw Elvis in the middle, now they ask me to get rid of him. I´m happy that they decided to drop him, but still, cutting in a drawing is sad. But I am 100% sure that this time the cutting will do good!
Today I got some new markers and a some new (for me) paiper from letraset by airmail, can´t wait to start using it!

No place like home?

Our bathroom is slowly turning into a functioning bathroom again and meanwhile we are living at J´s parents house. The handyman has turned the rest of the apartment into a workshop. It´s dusty, dirty and smells, but it´s ok cause he is the sweetest handyman I ever met!
Enjoy your weekend!

Friday it is!

This autumn I teach in graphic design, illustration and fashion drawing. I really enjoy it and it gives me so much just to feel that I have something to give to the students.
