My photo “Postapocalyptic Poetry” won a competition by VINK Aarhus lately.
The task was to take a photo of the Aarhus harbor area in a way that would show the unconventional beauty of it.
Industrial areas have their own aesthetics. When dusk leads into night, the landscape is claimed by an eerie stillness with the cold inanimation of mechanical carcasses and repetition expanding into the horizon.
Sara Wretljung started designing and making clothes not so long ago, but the quality of her work is stunning. So, while I was still in Stockholm earlier this year, we decided to photograph a few of her creations. The model is the always elegant Denise Karlsson.
This look is called Ruffled Rose.

I’ve realized that I don’t do much drawing lately, which sucks. So, I bought a small sketchbook that can glare at me from the coffee table every day, and force me to pick up the pencils. I try to do sketches every day or at least a couple of times per week. Every Wednesday I do a Midweek sketch where I ask people to give me ideas to draw. If you want to participate, go to my Facebook page and keep an eye out on next Wednesday.
Characters/people: Digital & Traditional media (acrylics, pencils etc.):
All the other stuff: Scenes, environments, objects and more loose work
Bonus: My timeline from Birth till Now!
Finally got to edit these pictures which have been sitting on my hard-drive since 2012. I basically kidnapped this insanely gorgeous girl called Gabriella Dal Rooth, gave her a giant lollipop and took her to Gröna Lund, which is an amusement park in Stockholm, Sweden. We dressed her up in this crazy outfit and took pictures (in between fending off semi-drunk theme park guests who also wanted to take pictures with her). And then things got weirder when a guy in a Joker costume (Sebastian Melker) randomly joined the photoshoot.
