World book

Today I got my sample of the new world book for the swedish RPG Svavelvinter. One nice suprise was that Fria Ligan (Free league publishing) put a neat brown tint on my grayscale illustrations. Old as well as new. I'm posting some of the new illustrations below, but you can also check out the "Winter is upon us" post for other new illustrations done for this book.

Merry Christmas!

Winter is upon us

The first real snow has fallen and what could be more suitable than a few illustrations that I made for Fria Ligans ( Free League publishing's) upcoming worldbook for the RPG Svavelvinter? (Sulphurwinter)
A lot I guess.

This way around I got to do some character-portraits and a few creatures that roams the lands in Erik Granströms fantasy novels and in the role-playing game.
The Grotebelia pic can be found on Erik's own blog where he writes short about it. The character Grotebelia from his books is actually based on one of his own daughters as a child. Both in appearance and manners. Now that's a fun fact for all the Granström fans out there.

Celebrate good times, come on!

It looks like I've found myself a niche... Chimney sweepers for the win!
This painting is for a sweeper that's going to retire after 48 years in the business (if I recall it correctly)
Now that's a celebration!

Poikkijärvi Throwdown 2.0

CrossFit maniacs will be set loose once more in the woods around Kiruna, Sweden. This year, the Poikkijärvi Throwdownn 2.0, will take place the 14th-15th of June. It´s a 2&2 team competition with two competing classes. Male and female. No mix teams allowed.
It's said to be tougher this year around, so if you are one of the participants, make sure you leave your sissypants at home.
If you are interested please visit: Facebook event.
All text is in swedish but if you understand the Swedish Chef from The Muppet Show you should be all right.

My little somethin' somethin' for this year's event

From the ashes of Ragnarok

I made an illustration for the novel "Ur Ragnaröks Aska" (From the ashes of Ragnarok) by Jörgen Karlsson.
You can read chapters from the book here: and see the illustration and read Jörgen's thoughts here:
Note that the page is in swedish.

And for all you lazy buggers out there, my illustration will be posted here on my blog as well. All for your convenience.

Master sweep jubilee

A few months back I got this commission to make a painting of a local Master Chimney sweeper for his ten year anniversary. So after a long wait I can finally post it here. His near and dear ones threw him a party and handed him the painting yesterday. It was a success!

I tip my hat to you, wishing you many more years in the business to come.

What's the word? Angry Bird!

When my little boy was about to turn six, he wanted me to make him a special birthday cake. Every time we spoke about it, he changed his mind about it's appearance. When we had reached around seven different types of cakes I had to step in and make the decision for him... Angry Birds! And no, not the women that get angry when you try to pick them up at the local watering hole, we're talking about the world phenomena game developed by Rovio Entertainment Ltd.

Ok, I admit that I went a little overboard on this one. I stopped at Two pig-cakes and around twenty chocolate balls draped with Angry Bird and Pig suits of marzipan.

So Rovio, when it's time for your anniversary, give me a call. Ok?
