Wallpapers out now!

These wallpapers are finally out at Mr Perswall. They namned the forst one firwork and the other one Passionate ink. My name for the first one was icon, do you remember when I worked on it?
The other one I have always called "pin-up"cause when I got the brief they said I should do something with old tatoos and so I did.

Blogged about here; Underbara clara. (In swedish.)

Tonight I will teach in google hangout, I have a class thats based on the internet in making patterns and now we will meet. Online!

I am not here. I am working on coming back but I needed a break. Mostly because I´m fed up with myself and my work. I´m serously questioning what I´m doing and why? There is no future for me in patterndesign here in sweden, they (my patterns) are impossible to sell.Now I have started a drawingbook with unselling patterns and it feels good. I´ll show u soon.

Lots and lots of work with a pattern if you, like me, are a line freak. First looking for the idea, then finding some inspiration, sketching (quite new for me but saves me alot of re-starting and cutting) then drawing with ink. scanning and then editing and coloring in photoshop. About 3 weeks work.
Now it´s been decided, I´m getting a cintiq. And a new BIG screen. Cause I´m worth it.

Unpredictable weather

We are preparing the swedish national dish tacos. I used to work in a food store and every friday all swedes have tacos. Now It's vaccation so tuesday is like friday!

Trying to live here and now.

First day of last vaccation week. And also the week when I turn 37. In my head I turned 37 the day after I turned 36 and in my head the vaccation is already over.
I´m used to work alot and to relax and do nothing is very hard for me. I always have 3 different jobs besides freelancing. Right now I´m part time employed as a graphic designer here, working part time as an art teacher (for seventh graders) at a school and teaching pattern design, grapic design and illustration here. All togather it´s about +100%. So vaccation is mostly about trying to catch-up with my comissions and other freelancing activitys and hanging with the kids. Tomorrow I will make a plan so that this autumn will be calmer for me, put up some nice goals to acchive. Are you good at planning?

Editing and testing colors in photoshop. Thinking about getting myself an cintiq, but still not sure if it´s for me. Perhaps I am to much of an control freak when it comes to lines?
Listening to sommar, today Swedish artist Lars Lerin are talking and playing music, He is special, I like him.
