Last weekend I had the opportunity to join a couple of friends who were invited to the danish island Christiansø. It was such a unique place.... very small, and old fortress still belonging to the danish army. No cars and no pets allowed and only 90 permanent residens. Very charming and very soothing to be in such a calm place, almost like a time travel back 50 or 60 years. Everyone seemed to have all the time in the world for each other. A truly very friendly place, despite their history. I will start by posting some of the sketches I made during my two-day-stay.

New sketch

Hi there,
This blog has been sadly overseen the past year but life has come in the way sort of. Anyway. This summer I´ve been dedicating most of my spare time to a comic project of mine :-). very inspiring I must say. But I managed to make some sketches at least. And hopefully there will be more in a couple of weeks when I will go to a Danish island. This one was drawn a week ago while I was waiting paitently for my Iphone to be repaired. The very service minded man in the store fixed it within a couple of hours ( he probably saw the panic in my eyes), but there was at least time to make this sketch of the old city hall house in the centre of Jönköping ( in southern Sweden).

Another sketch from Italy. This is from Siena. A place I tend to return to again and again. The atmosphere is wonderful. And the thousands of tourists that pour through the narrow streets don´t seem to be able to beat the feeling of a real living town.

I went to glourius Tuscany for a the last few days of august. My attention was to fill my sketchbook obviously, between driving a small car from one medieval town to another. Though scared beoynd imagination the first day out in Italian traffic I got used to it pretty fast and the last day I shouted scusi!!! out loud when I was doing yet another strange manouver, for the Italians, that is. I didn´t cause any major accidents thank God and came home with a bunch of sketches. Here, the first of them. from Piazza del Amfiteatro in Lucca.

Slow day

Summer vacation is over and I´m back to spending my days at the office in Skövde. Well, just two more weeks and then I´m off to Italy. Oh, I will draw heaps I hope. Here is one of the very few old, small and idyllic houses we have left in Skövde. The town was brutally (we thing now) modernized in the 60´s and a lot of the old houses were torn down. I really like the color of this warm warm yellow almost orange. Nice.

Bornholm illustrations

In june, I visited the lovely island Bornholm. The round church is typical for the area. Below the very idyllic town Gudhjem. The food is great and I can really recommend a visit.
