To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.

Art

Grayson Perry once said "I feel it is more important to have a long and sympathetic hands-on relationship with materials. A relaxed, humble, ever curious love of stuff is central to my idea of being an artist."
May I be so bold as to agree with you Mr Perry?

Comics

I am inspired by just about anything I have ever read. "Persepolis" by Marjane Satrapi woke me up (again) to the potential of comics and the graphic novel.
I like telling stories and making pictures. So comics are a real no-brainer.

Place-based Learning

Experiential, art-based, environmental, often outside the classroom but not always. Start where you are. Start with an open mind. Start with a sense of wonder and curiosity. But make sure you start.

Writing

My blog is a way of thinking and interacting. I am also a translator, working from French, German and Swedish to English. This helps when reading comic authors like Marjane Satrapi, Sara Granér and Ralf König in the original language.

Not long now. On Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th March, 2018, it’s time for Seriefest again! It is a great DIY comic festival where all kinds of folks sell their comics and other visual materials. I’ll be there with the Killer Jellyfish. You can read my interview here (in Swedish). Don’t miss the fun!
