Me and my shitty camera spent the day at London Aquarium - and it was awesome, even though I never been a fan of watching large animals kept in small spaces, I can't deny the fact that I love to get the chance to see them and getting so close to them. Unfortunately my photos are not that great, I did not have a tripod and you are not allowed to use flash in the aquarium but anyway, here are some pics from today.

The last few days has been completely insane and I have been very busy - and I love it! Some really fun things has happened that I am not allowed to talk about yet but at least I could celebrate quietly and eat some amazing Italian cake and walk around secretly smiling for a day. Something else that is good, there is finally something worth watching on TV, the Danish crime series The Killing is back with a part 2... this will not be good for my work moral.
And to all Londoners, the cake is from one of the best places to eat in central London, Princi, on 135 Wardour Street, their cake section will make you cry.

Here's a glimpse of my hand drawn Cowboy/ Wild West Project, I haven't had time to work on it for quite a while but hope to get back into it soon. Here's Clint in progress for now, I haven't drawn humans for ages so I find it hard now and have started to think a bit to much instead of just drawing, have to start getting back into it and remember that I do not want it to look realistic and pretty anyway, but, I do want it to be clear who the Clint is :)

I am working on some new prints and have messed up my entire kitchen with acrylic paint...
Cass Art has this amazing acrylic paint box with 48 different colors but the best thing is the price, £18, brilliant.
Other then that, thanks to my sister Malin for acting as my PR woman in Sweden ♥

Slightly bored even-though I have plenty of work to do, need something new to plunge into and has hooked up with a few illustration and design friends to plan a exhibition for the beginning of next year, fun, fun fun!
Here's a good talk with Stefan Sagmeister about the importance of time off and playing, so I am having a little play today and the images above was what I came up with.
And yes, one more thing, I started to sell my prints in a few shops here in UK and US but I would love to sell some in Sweden as well but don't know any shops dedicated to independent art and design, if you happen to know of any please let me know!

This is little Squizle, the name that we gave a baby squirrel that me and my boyfriend ended up being adoptive parents to for two few days last spring. Some guys had found her in their studio and took her to the park where we live, the story sounds a bit suspect I know, why and how would a baby squirrel get into a studio, but who knows? They left her in the park where we live at the same moment as our friend happened to walk by on the way to our house. She was very weak and you could tell that she was not well and it did not feel right to just leave her there in the park but we decided to wait and see if any other squirrel might come and help her but nothing happened. In the end we started getting afraid of a dog or a fox attacking her and ended up taking her to our flat while calling animal organizations to see if there was anyone who could help.
She was the cutest little thing and ate loads and seemed to get more energy and even started to play with us a little bit, but the last day she all of a sudden got worse and just wanted to sleep and be close to us. After two days a animal organization came to collect her and take her to the vet and she was ill and could not be saved.
Forget about cute dogs and kittens, this little squirrel baby with her massive feet and big eyes broke our hearts, it's a shame that we could not save her but at least we could save her from being eaten by a dog or a fox in the park and made sure that she was well taken care of her last two days in life.
