Being a freelance Illustrator is not as glamorous as it's cracked up to be, therefore I'm doing the switch to Industrial Design (it's much sexier being a designer). I'm designing some vacuum cleaners to start with, expect them in shops in a not to far future (and in a galaxy far far away).
I thought I was feed up on Robots, but I got invited to a group show in Canada (more on that when I finish this drawing) on Robots....

Made in my sketchbook I'm trying to spend less time in them..
Hopefully I won't have any problems with this name (trademark wise), the Tintin Hair-do was one of the last things I added on this piece. I made this while trying a new paper Arches 300gr Satin.

I usually use Saunders and Waterford (Satin) but I wanted a paper that didn't have so much yellow tint for a change.
I made it onto the cover of a Taiwanese magazine called DPI, it was the July number which says something for the postal services.Our dog is happy to, she is the first Swedish Terrier to be featured in a Taiwanese magazine!
I made some Illustrations for Tank Magazine (ran as a supplement to the Observer) this autumn
Not sure they did end up in the publication though it was about expensive presents, a thing that might have gone out of vogue..
