E.A. Poe book cover
Sometimes you get these wonderful assignments that you actually would be willing pay for. :) When the kind people over at the Spanish publisher Quaderns Crema asked if they could use my photo 'Wheels of Time' as the cover for a collection of poetry by no one less than Edgar Allan Poe, I had to stop myself from shouting "F¤%k YES!!!!!" into their ears. :) Nicest check off my bucket list ever. :) http://www.quadernscrema.com/llibres/poesia_poe

The Dream Formula
Lately I’ve thought a lot about dreams. Dreamers get a lot of crap. Get called naïve, lazy, having the head in the clouds and not being in touch with reality. That last bit is sort of half-true.

The Language of Pictures
I’m not really a person that is into “stuff” (my phone is so old roaming charges involves adding a longer string), but it was amazing when I got my new camera. It was like going from banging on pots and pans to get a brand new shiny Mapex drum kit. I could finally do all that stuff I had envisioned in my head but never had the right tools to implement. But I never knew what a wonderful storytelling instrument the camera could be. Suddenly I found myself using it more than the pen or the keyboard to tell the stories I have in my head.
