I made this quick sketch down at the railwaystation today during lunchhour. A huge transportationtrain passed by- a neverending number of carriages- at a very high speed. A quiet scary feeling since it came so close. I fell for this scene because of the little train with the yellow stripes-very cute. And the wires and peculiar posts make an interesting perspective.

Where are we

27 of march and the same temperature in southern Sweden as in Italy and Spain. The square is full of people sitting in the sun and a low buzz of voices fill the air. The sense of an mediterranian atmosphere is strengthen by the bunch of greek looking men sitting conversating in the sun.


I made this one last weekend but I havn´t had any time to publish it due to an completely crazy workload. Always nice to be busy but there are limits. The yellow postboxes are last-minutes-one that are conveniently placed for drive-thru- very appropriete for me right now who is living in a last-minute-zone. The buildings in the background are the older part of the huge Volvoplant located in Skövde.

Before there were cellphones

Luckily I have meetings so I get a chance to see the world outside my office. These last few days it has been a wonderful springweather. I didn´t have much time but I did something really quick. In Mariestad you can find this charming phoneboot. Beats any cellphone anyday at least when it comes to appearance.

In the middle of the day

A quick lunch with a wiev. This is the big square in Skövde on a regular friday in march. I´ve never really liked those baloonlike lamps that seems to be everywhere. A lot of people passing by doing some errands during lunchbreak. It is quite nice really with the lack of green during this time of year. It can be so overwhelming with those bright green treetops. The pastel shades seem to go better with the climate.

Had a morning meeting in Mariestad, half an hours drive from Skövde. After the meeting I drove into the oldest part of the town and parked my car on a place with a nice view to draw. In the sketch you can see the old theater in the background- a little pink delicacy.

Spring in the air?

The second day of march and spring seems to be in the air. I´ve parked outside the supermarket and thought I should do a quick sketch before going in doing my groceryshopping. Dirty snow melting away on the side of the road and people jumping over puddles to avoid getting their feet wet.
