Some pics from Sweden: Swedish villas

Hi Everyone!

Walked through a forest on Lidingö, 20 min from the centre of Stockholm today and found a beautiful little lake and all these super Swedish wood houses that I thought I'd show for those of you who have never been to Sweden, I pick the top one :)

I had to show this as it is very different from the East London suburb that I live in,

New Sketches

Today I have been dealing with practical things and have hardly had time to draw. Just did these sketches while listening to Jean Grae and especially her tracks My Crew and My Angel is You. Jean Grae is one of my favorite female rappers worth checking up as she actually has something to say compared to the kind of hip hop they play on the commercial radio. And while I am talking about female rappers I have to mention Bahamadia, she eats mc's for breakfast and is amazing. Other then that? I am involved in some fun projects and is quite exited but will post them all when it's all finished ;)

Until then, here's some sketches from today. 

All the Best,

I am back!

Creative Swedish person who made their own house-boat...

Now I am back in a grey London and will have to go out today and remember all the reasons why I live here, the living standard is so much higher in Sweden and in what other capital can you take a boat to the Pub and go swimming in the city? Anyway, I am a bit homesick but will get back to work and forget about it, here are some pics from my holiday, I hope you all have had a nice summer!

All the Best,

From Me To You; Ninja Cat

It would be extremely boring to write a Blog that no one ever red and no one ever left any comments on so this is to my lovely readers, a little present that I hope you like, Ninja Cat.

Cut him and his Ninja outfit out following the thick outlines and do like me, refuse to ever grow too old to play!

Have a nice summer!

All the Best,

PS. You save Ninja Cat to your computer by clicking on the image and letting it open in a new window and go save as ( if anyone did not know)

Finally: The Mad Painter T-shirts for sale!

I was supposed to set up an Etsy shop but there's to much going on at the moment so this one goes out to all of you that were interested in The Mad painter T-shirt,

There are 5 in size L and 4 in size XL, they are all 100% cotton and white.
They are now for sale for 150 Swedish Krona or £13 - that is without postage.

It was mostly friends and people that I know that was interested so I can meet up with all my London people so that you don't have to spend money on postage - and my people in Sweden, I will be in Stockholm in July and can meet up with you then so that you save postage money as well. For my other friends around Sweden, postage will be cheaper if I send you the t-shirts from Stockholm then from UK.

E-mail me on if you are interested and we'll sort it out so that you can look cool in you Mad Painter T this summer ;)

All the Best,
