Instead of writing a long, long post about the Stockholm comic festival trip, getting back home and jumping right back on working with various comics projects, and being generally excited about the stuff I’m doing and the creative projects coming up, I drew a picture.
It’s that time of the year! Woho!
This year though, I won’t be brining so much stuff with me to show or sell. The projects I’m working on at the moment have taken alot of time, and none of them are produced to be a fanzine. Lot’s and lots of inking on mine and Niklas Asker’s new project being done at the moment.
As I wrote in another blog post, I’ve been working on translating and shaping up a story from last year, Optics, and bring it with me, but things don’t always end up as you think. I didn’t want to do anything halfassed, and decided to push it a little bit forward. Maybe I’ll look in to digital copies / online publishing as well.
I will spend alot of time at the festival behind C’est Bon kultur’s table, selling cool comics, takling about cool comics and hopefully buying some cool comics as well! And seeing all you cool people I only see this one time every year!
See you in Stockholm!
The madmen behind the self-titled group Rob & Bob have put together this brilliant Anthology, and I’m happy to say I’m in it!
It’s also featuring amazing artists such as Anna Åhlen,, David Liljemark, Ellen Ekman, Hanna Stenman, Henri Gylander, Joakim Derlow, Johannes Aggro Torstensson, Maria Wigelius, Robin Larsson, Robert Pettersson, Simon Gärdenfors och Sling. Quite a lineup!
It’s due for release at the Stockholm international comics festival (26-28 april) but will be available from the creators themselves even after that.
Please visit robochbob.se for more information (in swedish).
This is a small sneak peek of my upcoming comic-book project with Niklas Asker! Last time we worked together I did the colors (The City of Ember), but this time I’m inking the book. This snapshot is from the first page of what’s looking to be 45 pages, so expect a few more updates and info from here on.
With this year’s comic festivals coming up, I decided to get back and print up a few more copies of my old fanzines.
Going back to my year old project Optics was not as easy as I thought. It’s easy to see the things I would like to change, and redo. Right now it’s more about how much I need to do in order to feel good about it, without changing anything massive in the book. Think of it as a second edition of a book, or a directors cut version of a movie. Translating it to English has been on my task-list since I printed the first edition (plus correcting a few typos and misstakes!), and I’m now finally getting around to do it.
I’m not entirely sure this will be ready and done before this year’s SiS (Stockholms internationella seriefestival), but that’s what I’m aiming at for now. I’ve been wanting to put it out as a E-book, so when I get to that it will be the second edition as well.
Last year I participated in a web-comics project called Webtrip, where a couple of comics-creators did a chapter of a story each. The project was arranged and produced by the Lyon BD festival. Now, almost a year later the project is going to be collected in a book! For pre-ordering and more info, please head over to the international crownd-funding-site Ulule.
You can still read it online at webtrip-comics.com, under “season 1″.
This is a portrait I did for a friend a while ago, didn’t want to post it here until I was sure she got it and got to see it in real life first!
There, I’ve finally transfered my site to WordPress! I’ve been using Blogger for a good while now, but I reached the end of how I could customize my site, so WordPress seemed like the natural step forward. An over-all simple and easy process made difficult and problematic. It’s bound to change little by little from now on as i explore my way trough the wordpress-toolbox. If you find the site upside-down it’s probably only me going a little bit too deep in beliving I can handle any kind of editing the code because I want to change the size of the fonts or something else important.
But most likley everything will work perfectly fine and you will be able to read my workblog and have a look at my portfolio without any issues!
