Cartographica Imaginarium
Been watching a Let’s Play of Twilight Princess lately, so true form Midna it is. Based it on one of her earlier concept designs, with a looser and less form-fitting outfit - which I honestly like better than the design that actually ended up in the game. Post with WIP-shots and progress babble available for my Patreon-backers.

Hi guys. I’m in a bit of a political depression funk today - Swedish parlimentary elections were yesterday, and the racists/extremists got 13% of the votes. This is not only depressing but genuinely scary, and I’m feeling kind of let down and helpless. I’ll be back tomorrow.

Bought some clothes at a second-hand store sale the other day, and I feel fancy enough to share. All of these clothes (shoes, hat and mismatched socks not included) cost me 7 dollars in total. And the dress has pockets! 
I feel so fancy.
(I’ve made my first Patreon-post, btw, with a development sketch for my upcoming advent calendar)

I just started a Patreon!

As a freelance illustrator and comic artist, my income is often very uncertain, so Patreon looks like a really great way to help pay the bills while I focus on doing what I love - draw and tell stories.

I will continue doing what I’ve been doing - drawing and posting illustrations and comics and stuff here on Tumblr and other places - but Patreon-backing means I will be able to devote even more time to it than I already am. I’m also hoping to get enough creative space to start planning a longer-format webcomic, because I miss working on a big story.

Patreon-backers will get access to stuff like hi-res comics with extra material, early previews of finished artwork and comics before they turn up here, as well as early concept sketches and such that never get posted anywhere else. One of the pledge-tiers even includes a digital sketch commission for the backers!(Pledge-rewards and Patreon-only posts-content might change and expand as I figure this thing out - more sketches! Possibly videos of me drawing! Maybe even postcards with robots on them!)Please spread the word and help me get the ball rolling - every little helps!

Reblogging for all you folks living in a different time-zone. :)

More recipe-illustration, because I need practise drawing food! And also because this is delicious, and needs to be shared. Swedish chocolate-oat balls, aka chokladbollar. Ingredients for basic recipe:100 grams of butter1 1/2 deciliter of sugar3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder5 deciliters of rolled oats2-3 tablespoons of watersome shredded coconut for decoration… and whatever else sounds good. Start by mixing soft butter and sugar, and then add the rest of the ingredients - you can add in flavourings here if you want; vanilla powder, for example, or you can switch out the tablespoons of water and use cold brewed coffee instead. Mix until everything is a uniform, kinda soggy mess. Roll into balls of whatever size you want, then roll them in the shredded coconut. Put the resulting balls on a plate and stick it in your fridge for as long as you can stand it (freezer also works, if you’re more impatient) to let them set and harden a little bit. Take them out whenever you want, and try not to eat all of them at once. 

A few tips - try to use as high-quality cocoa powder as you can. It does make a difference in the taste. Also, when you add the rolled oats, it’s going to look like it’s waaaay too much - don’t worry, and just keep mixing. It’ll work out in the end, I promise. And like I said - add anything you think will taste good. You can switch out the shredded coconut for sugar, or more cocoa powder, or sesame seeds. You can cut down on the sugar if you want to make it less delicious unhealthy, and so on. And of course, the best part of these chocolate-oat balls is that it requires only one mixing bowl, and absolutely no actual baking at all. It’s practically fool-proof.

This week’s #drawpartytime theme was “home”, so I couldn’t resist drawing Talassa in her lighthouse again. There’s something almost viscerally emotional about the word - and concept - of “home” that I kind of find fascinating, and Talassa is one of my most home-bound characters. She’s been shown the world and she’s had adventures, and at the end of it all, she’s happy to stay centered in one place. She’s an anchor to everyone else’s drifting ship.

The second chapter of the webcomic I write and foervraengd draw is now in Utopi magazine. That’s pretty cool.

THIS IS A BIG FUCKING HUGE ACHIEVEMENT TO ME AND TOMB. THIS IS SRSLY THE BEST THING HAPPENING TODAY I’M SRSLY SO HAPPY LIKE LOOK

ME AND TOMBS COMIC IS IN A MAGAZINE CAN YOU FUCKING BELIEVE THIS AISHAKJSFDFSBHK

I have to say I felt exactly the same way when I first got published (in the same magazine!) - there’s something awesome and kind of unreal about seeing your work in professional print for the very first time. It’s like, finally you’ve moved onto greater horizons than tacking your scribbles up on the fridge door.

… Of course, mentally, I think some small part of me is always going to be stuck on that fridge door.

But yay for being published! KrigRAWR is a pretty awesome comic, and non-Swedes can find it online in English. :)

Last night was #drawpartytime on Twitter, and this week’s theme was “travel”, so I drew some of my frequent traveller characters - Orme and his pet golem Auga up top, and then the Cartographer from Fathoms of the Sky on the bottom left. On the bottom right is an excerpt from the rough pencils of the romance comic I’m working on.

Yes! Räddade Stafettserien från att vara död i ett år! Det var fan på gränsen, men det gick. Sida 117 och 118!

Ledsen att jag inte kan texta for shit xD

Oh. My. Stars.

Stafettserien - a completely crazy* round robin comic that got started among my college friends - rises, zombie-like, from the year-long gap in updates! Thank you, BG!

*) Robot-clones? Check. Unicorn that vomits rainbows? Check. One dude getting knocked into space, where he has to redecorate Unicron’s summer house? Double-check. One guy’s evil vampiric twin whose name is a homophone for his twin? Tripple-check. This comic literally has it all.

Unfortunately, Stafettserien is only available in Swedish, which kinda limits its availability, but still. I am proud to be a part pf ts utter madness (that’s me on the first page, by the way, with the really long hair and the military coat and stuff).
