Have been working on this surface pattern for a while now. Created these two bears whom have been printed onto scarves and umbrellas before. Are using the same animal characters for this new upcoming project but have redesigned the surface pattern and products that goes with it. Can not post all pictures at this point but I post a little sneak peak, above. This is a sneak peak from a baby blanket that are supposed to be launched in August at Formex 2016, Stockholm. And just the beginning of a brand new home decor and fabric collection with products for babies. So exciting!
Above a little sneak peak of more surface patterns and works for a Japanease client. These will be launched in 2017, so still some time before the reach the market. Just wanted to show you what I am working on at the moment…! :) /T
Hi there, hope you all have had a taste of summer…I could really have this kind of weather all year around. :) These last weeks before summer holidays its time to finish off a few projects, prepare for future meetings, send out a little summer gift to clients, clean the studio and make plans for the future!
Above a little sneak peak of new surface patterns for umbrellas and ponchos! Its a client in Japan called Ogawa that will launch these in August 2016!
On a very windy day me and my friend Martina were trying to take the best portrait picture ever. I really needed new pictures since the last one I took was at least 4 years ago. Here are a few of them…such a fun day, thank you Martina!
For quite some time I have been working closely with ÖBO on this surface pattern project. They are moving into a new headoffice in 2017 and needed a surface pattern that could work both inside the new buildning, on stationary, home products and on their cars. It took some time and a few meetings before we finally decided to go more subtile and handdrawn. We wanted to create something that could be used over time. Think it turned out very well in the end, a useful surface pattern that can be combined with other colors and shapes in so many ways.
Another little snapshot from a new collection of trays, napkins, dishcloths and tea towels (more pictures on website). Go visit Citronelles at Formex in August and you ´ll see the the whole collection!
Drawing today and finishing off a few ideas for new surface patterns. Don´t seem to get enough of imaginary forests and gardening. :) Today it´s been one of those days when it´s been tricky to stay focused on one thing. So I have done a bit of everything…not a very good idea, since it feels I haven´t done half of what I had planned to do. Well well…now I think I deserve a cup of coffee. :)
Trying to capture everyday life and food we eat every morning, just realizing people eat different types of breakfasts in different parts of the world. Might have to add just a few things…or decide if I am illustrating a typical Swedish breakfast or English or both. But I guess it dosen´t just come down to that. Maybe it all depends on our lifestyle and what we like and are used to eat from when we grew up?
It´s such a pleasure to work with clients in Japan! They seem to be very proud of their designers and even put our name, picture and some information about us on the product tag. :) This is a tag for a tote bag.
Wishing you all a few nice days off work! I stayed at home yesterday with a very sick J. (We had to go to the hospital). So today I am spending a few hours at work to make up for lost time. Looking forward to few weeks with healthy kids now and a few days in the summer house this weekend. Have a happy and healthy easter! /T
Easter is coming up and I am working on some easter egg drawings. Love the two armed egg holder above. :) Hoping for sunshine during easter our break…/T
So finally I receive an email letting me know that the baby clothes are now out for sale at all Uniqlo stores around the globe. Such amazing news, worth celebrating! Such a pity I´m at home with the worst flu ever…well well. I am really happy about this collaboration and the opportunity to create surface patterns for toddlers. I might just try and squeeze this dress onto my little one at home, even if he is a boy and not really a baby any more but just to see what it looks like on a mini person. :)
Here are some new Scandinavian home products that are for sale in the UK. No. 9 is my surface pattern for Klippan Yllefabrik, here as a tea towel. Yay!!
Hi! Hope you all had a nice weekend! I really enjoyed having some time off and nothing booked this weekend. Here is a new surface pattern called Hasselnötter I designed for umbrellas but now also sold as bags, pins and pouches, please click here.
