I always liked to run around with my camera and to take pictures of everything and nothing and to look at pictures, everything from cities and patterns to illustrations, sketchbooks, buildings and architecture and super styled fashion shots but still used to be a bit skeptic about Instagram, I already have a Twitter, Flickr and Tumblr account, what now? But I am sold and got an account and really enjoy the visual feast on there, join in!
PS Isn't it a bit scary that Kate Moss is absolutely every where so now it only takes a glimpse of her hand and a bit of her hair to see that it is her even on some ripped posters?

There are definitely too few illustration exhibitions in London, don't you think?
I thought that I should do something about it so last summer I curated "Let's Fika" together with Karin Soderquist and Danijela Dobric, featuring artists like Hanna Melin and Martin Wollerstam at Fika, London.
Now it is time for the next show.
This time I am curating the exhibition and it is all about celebrating character design within contemporary illustration with a added twist, I want everyone to forget about everyday troubles and boredom, politics, triple dip recessions and domestic chores and instead focus on what we love the most, having free time and doing all the things that makes us happy.
And I am very pleased to say that I have some of my absolute favourite illustrators in the show;
and I, Asa Wikman
and Mat Pringle are also in the show!
A Study of Sports & Leisure
22-23 Little Portland Street
London W1W 8BU
Hope to see you there!

That's it, my Thursdays at the Roller-skate Disco is finished wrapped up and ready to go to the On These Magic Shores exhibition at the O3 Gallery in Oxford with artists like Gemma Correll, Sarah Ray, Julia Pott, Kris Tate and Jamie Mitchell.
I had so much fun working on my piece, if I have time I will make a little animated monster disco.
But now it's time for dinner.

My room is filled with monsters, bits of paper, coffee mugs and it is a mess! I am working on my piece for On These Magic Shores exhibition that will take place at the O3 Gallery in Oxford in the beginning of May, and I have been hit by a big wave of performance anxiety at the same time as I think that I have been hit by über excitement as I have been asked to especially do something with monsters, which is my favourite thing. Here is some more information regarding the exhibition;
On These Magic Shores by O3 Gallery, in association with Comma, will feature the work of a selection of the UK's leading illustrators in a group exhibition showcasing some of the very best contemporary illustration.
Focussing on and celebrating the playful, imaginative world's portrayed by these illustrators, the exhibition will explore the witty narratives and contemporary visual twists on traditional folklore imagery found in these works.
The show opens on the 4th of May and will be up and running until the 16th of June at;
Oxford Castle Quarter
I can't wait to see it!
