Weekly affirmations

These three illustrations I made recently for my agency were part of a large project of “Weekly affirmations” created by Ani Trime Lhamo (1928-2016), an American-born Buddhist nun.

Japanese storytelling yoga

This time I was commissioned by my close friend Azusa Itagaki on a poster for her special project (yoga & dance workshop) that she is gonna run very soon on the beautiful island of Shikoku in Japan. Azusa has moved recently back to Japan after 10 years living in Stockholm so her workshop is inspired by Scandinavian life and nature.

MBSR

In the latest issue of Mindful magazine you can find my illustrations that I made for an article by Allan Green about MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction).

Fruity Stories

In April I was commissioned by Squeezed Up, a Stockholm based smoothie bar, on a series of fun and a little bit quirky illustrations. I was free to illustrate anything that would make customers think of fresh fruits and smoothies. The whole series has been printed and turned into a wall mural in one of the Squeezed Up bars in the centre of Stockholm.

Slurp!

It’s probably one of the sweetest (almost literally) illustrations I have ever made. I was commissioned by Time magazine on an article by Nate Hopper about the latest unicorn food trend and how Starbucks followed it with its limited edition magical frappuccino.

Kind of a funny story about death and tax returns

Recently I was commissioned by The Boston Globe on a beautiful story by Patrick McVay. “Kind of a funny story about death and tax returns” are the author’s memories of his late father who had worked his whole life as a tax collector.
