300 grams less of dog

There is an eye in there somewhere.

Hairy and proud, and still unknowing of what will happen.

After the hairdressers (she looks traumatised)! She now weighs 300 grams less.

The weather was horrible today. It was humid and a couple of degrees below zero, so it was icy cold. Later on the rain poured down and of course I had chosen this day to do errands in the city. On top of this I feel a cold coming on, my voice is going.
But the forest is beautiful whatever the weather.

I haven't posted for a while, here come a whole bunch of drawings.
I wanted to draw people; portraits – sort of. But once I get started on a character, it comes alive and ends up in a totally different way than I had in mind.

slow work

Cellula I

Cellula II

I've been working on two large (50 x 70 cm) drawings for the past few weeks. Small, small circles, drawn together, slowly taking form.

I call them my "cells". They are part of one of my projects at the studio at Sigtuna Folkhögskola. Very meditative to work on, I lose track of time after a while. Can't work too long at a time though; the small circular movement makes my hand and back ache and my eyes water.

Now I want to do several more, a whole series with organic forms!

They can't be rushed though, it'll take time...

I've forgotten to post this link, but better late than never; I'm featured in Design this design that online magazine, page 15.

inspired by red

Fall is here all right, hardly any leaves left on the trees.

My self portrait project at the studio continues. I still consider it a "morning exercise", and try not to get stuck with it too long. There are other projects I want to do afterwards. But it's fun and really good for me, so I find it difficult to stop. Inspired by all the red around me I tried out a red pencil this time.

goals in life

Lately the mornings have been shrouded in fog. Slowly, slowly the fog lifts and the sun finally comes out, at least for a little while. It's getting colder and colder – there was even frost the other morning.

On my way to the studio by bike, I had to stop several times to photograph – it was so beautiful!

This weeks only self portait. That means only one day in the studio.
At least I've started on a new project, which feels really inspiring. It's a series of portraits and for the time being I call it People I never knew I knew. How many can there be? Lots and lots I hope.

Have a nice weekend!
