My Bio

S'up puppies !

I'm an artist/photographer and ex art student, I mostly draw digitally or in aquarelle. I studied art, art history and pottery making! ...also went to full-time photography school for a year.

I was born in Östersund, Northern Sweden.

I like loads of things. To narrow it down those things are roughly: food, motorcycling, skateboarding, travelling, horror stories, conspiracy theories, baroque art and folklore. As well as Swedish/Sámi culture & history, which is super interesting to me.

My main inspirations art wise are John Bauer, Sven Nordqvist & Hans Arnold, all from my childhood. (Not that I really bring them into my art, but they inspire me to continue drawing.) I own a ton of books with their stuff.

Find LOADS more about me on my 'interests' tab.

For digital art: HP OMEN + Wacom Intuos tablet - iPad + Procreate

For aquarelle: Moleskine, if loose paper usually ARCHES® paper, currently a thinner 185g but I also like the thicker and granural papers. Clairefountaine or Hahnemühle works too. For brands of watercolour I use Sakura KOI, Winsor & Newton, LUKAS. As well as the little Daler Rowney box my grandma got me 4 Christmas that one time...

For photography: my little Canon EOS M50

Programs for drawing: Procreate for iPad. Corel Painter Essentials 6 & 7

Programs for photography editing: Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop

don't worry about thanking me for llamas, or even returning one.

you of course can, but if i gave you one that just means i'm paying you back for supporting other artists / being an interesting deviant, with a small gesture (the llama) - thanks!



if you promote lolicon/shotacon, please get off my page & don't contact me.

as a CSA survivor it bothers me, and i don't want to see that sort of content, as it triggers old traumatic memories i'd rather dodge. thanks.

i watched ghibli's arrietty & i'm so pissed off at the ending >:-(

Little memorial for my recently passed pets...

Little memorial for my recently passed pets...

Just wanted to make a little post for Chesh and the gang. My cat, pictured in the header, passed this week. Got hit by some neighbours farming equipment this Monday & was found by some of my mothers friends who called her last night, as they discovered his body on a walk. We immediately dug him a grave by the trail behind our home, where our late pup's grave is as well. It's starting to turn into a mass-grave now, lol. This is the 3rd pet I've lost in half a year. 2nd in under a month... So... It's going to get a bit gruesome, but I want to get the full context out & vent a lil. First of, our little Pup, we lost him late 2019, after he had battled cancer for some time, which went greatly unnoticed. He was so good at concealing his pain, that once we went to the vet for an emergency, we had no choice but to put him down. It became apparent that he was in horrible pain. He was only 5 years old. Lil Nacho dog, the one I wrote about last time, 12 years old. I've handled the grief well
